I am back with my third post this week! I will be quiet again for a while after this cause I am off to stay at my Daughter, Sarah's, on Saturday and will be there for nearly a week. Lots of cuddles with my gorgeous Granddaughters Freya and Millie - collectively known as Frillie! Sarah's idea!
Its Sarah's birthday tomorrow, here is her card. She won't be looking at my blog!
I started with Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks which I smooshed on my craft sheet and spritzed with water. I pressed a piece of watercolour card into the wet ink, dried it then dabbed it into more of the ink for interest and also added drops of water which I dabbed off with kitchen roll. I made another couple of pieces the same so I had one for an insert and one for the sentiment and flowers.
On the background piece I stencilled some swirls with a couple of the inks and stamped an interesting script stamp from Paperartsy HP1306EZ (never used before) which adds more interest to the background. I thought the swirls would go with the swirls on the sentiment. I then used my dotty stencil to add some texture paste circles and left to dry overnight. 'Daughter' is a Papermania Typography Stamp (never before used) which I stamped on a piece of my inked watercolour card in Versamark ink and embossed with detail white powder and coloured in with pink, orange and green Promarkers. 'Special' is stamped with Habenero Versafine (never used before) using My Favourite Things Label Maker Sentiments. The flowers are cut using Crysanthemum Strip die by Cheery Lynn and I Wink of Stella'd them and attached them with brads. I also used Wink of Stella on the sentiment and the background swirls then added the sequins with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
PaperArtsy - Pink and Orange - I got my inspiration from Tracey's tags which were shown on the challenge post - thank you Tracey!
Darnell's NBUS 10 Challenge - Never Before Used Schtuff - Mine are the Paperartsy script stamp, the Daughter stamp and the Habernero ink. There is an option to use bubblewrap - I didn't but my circles of paste look like bubblewrap???
That's Crafty - Round and round.
All these are fabulous challenges that give so much inspiration! Thank you!
Thank you so much for visiting me, I really appreciate it! Take care. Christine xxx
