Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, I almost got my washing out on the line yesterday but after I had dealt with the aftermath of white tissue in a dark wash, ooh that makes me mad! Anyway by the time I had picked all the bits off, I got ready to go out and it had started raining, which it continued on and off for a couple of hours so I just put washing on airer in front of the Aga, it dries quite fast there but not as nice as being dried outside.
Today's card is my first proper attempt at watercolour, using my new Koi Watercolours that were half price at Craft Stash. I had made a pile of Distress Oxide backgrounds weeks ago by squidging ink pads on craft mat, spritzing with water, then spritz watercolour card with water before dipping card into ink, I then spritzed again to get colours to blend, they do turn out better if you let them air dry (once again I used the Aga).
I picked a coupke of the backgrounds based on this weeks colour challenge, I dusted it with anti static bag and then stamped my floral image in Versamark, I added gold embossing powder and heat set. Then came the hard part trying to choose which colours to use, I went with orange and pink to match the challenge mood board, then added green for leaves. Having the embossed outline made the colouring really easy. I left the colours to dry overnight and then matted onto gold (to pick out embossing) and then orange and green. I added a tag that I die cut from a similar coloured piece and stamped 'For you' on and embossed with gold, i pulled a piece of narrow green ribbon through and attached to my card.
It's a different look, I quite like it.
Paul is off to work today so I will be in my craft room, what are you all up to??
Enjoy your day my lovelies,
Sending Love and hugs,
