Hello and thank you for visiting my blog - it makes me so happy when you do! I have a card for you today that I made a while ago but didn't get round to blogging.
The background was made by putting a selection of Distress Oxide Inks on my craft sheet, spritzing with water then dipping watercolour colour card into it. I wanted a delicate summery look so I left it quite pale. When dry, I used more Distress Oxides to stamp the foliage from HobbyArt Orla The Owl stamp set, in second, third and even fourth generation ink. Sorry I can't remember the colours of inks I used. The Bulrushes from Darkroom Door Wildflowers 2 stamp set and the dragonflies from a Cardio stamp set were stamped using black Versafine then the panel edged with, I think, Black Soot Distress Oxide and attached to a black card base. Finally lots of Stickles of course to the dragonflies and Bulrushes for sparkle.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Penny Black Allsorts - Things with Wings.
Artistic Stamper - Distress It.
That's Crafty - Close to Nature.
Country View - In the Summer Garden. I wish I had a river going through my garden! We did have a beautiful dragonfly yesterday though!

I hope you have had a fab weekend. I am going to my daughter's on Wednesday for a few days so lots of Granddaughter cuddles! I am really looking forward to it.
Take care. Christine xxx
