Hello! Thank you for stopping by. Sorry I haven't been around for a couple of weeks, Today's card is bright and colourful which is more than can be said for today's weather which was very dull indeed!
I started off with a piece of watercolour card cut to be a little bit larger that the Cover a Card stamp, Fireworks, by Impression Obsession. I used an anti static bag over the piece of card then stamped with black Versafine using my Misti so it could be stamped a couple of times to get a clear image on the textured watercolour paper. I then heat embossed with clear powder. The whole image was spritzed liberally with water and also Abominable Snowman Glimmer Mist then I dropped in Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress re-inker ink using each colour for a different firework. I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink to fill in the gaps. When dry, I cut the piece into equal sized squares, edged each one with a black Promarker, and then decided to mix them up before adding them to my 7 inch square card base. I preferred the more random look of the mixed up picture for this particular card. I added some tiny die cut stars (Mama Elephant) where the centres of the fireworks show then left it at that. I was going to add a sentiment but decided against it as I like the colours too much to cover them up!
I would like to enter the following challenges:
PaperArtsy - Squares and Grids (I was inspired by many of the fab samples).
Craft Barn - Fireworks
Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes
All of these are fabulous blogs and I get so much inspiration from them!
Thank you so much for visiting me, I am so grateful! I will be round to visit you in the next few days. Take care and have a lovely weekend. Christine xxx
