It's the first Tuesday in April and that means a brand new technique challenge at Technique Time Tuesday, Hop on over to the blog to follow the tutorial on water stamping. Now, if you have visited my blog before you'll know that I'm a CAS kind a girl, so this card is a little bit different for me. My background started with blending inks from my Big and Juicy sunset ink pad and adding butterflies and field grasses stamped in water- you can just see them in the photo
I cut out the flowers (from the Reason To Smile set) and dragonflies, stamped on a similar inked background, and stamped some grass silhouettes in the corner. Two ribbons, black and purple to pick up the colours, run across the card and, as you can see, I've made it into an easel card, with this panel
I am going to enter my card in a couple of challenges, the Heck of a challenge, where the theme is 'just add water'-well I sure did that, and Crafty Ribbons Challenge - can't believe I've not found this challenge blog before as I LOVE using ribbons in my cardmaking. Finally I found a challenge for pastel shades, Jellypark Challenge, and although I haven't used a Jellypark image, I did have fun looking at them (love the little sheep!)
Not sure if I will be developing my style in this direction, I find it so hard, but it's always good to have a go at something new. It's a big DT at Technique Time Tuesday so there's bound to be something there to amaze and inspire you and you have the whole of April to make your project- go on- try water stamping!
