I have seen so many beautiful cards with watercolour techniques, that I had to give it a try. I neither followed any course nor read any tutorials about this technique. I only watched this video by Betsy Veldman, altough I used distress inks instead of dye inks. It is quite fun and I love the quick result you have. The stamp set is perfect for this technique. I will practise a little more and maybe I can show you some more cards in the future!
I'd like to participate in the CASologychallenge for this week where it is all about flowers!
Thank your for coming by and I wish you a nice Sunday!
add: The watercolour challenge is still open at the 'bij oma Dee' blog, so I linked my card there as well!
Hip hip hooray for my friend in Singapore! She celebrated her birthday last Sunday, but the card I made her was delivered a bit too late and arrived just today. Yep, I confess I posted it a bit too late as well.... I always forget the extra days it need between posting and delivering. Sorry!
I made the card with a small background stamp from Amy Tangerine. I didn't use it before, but it actually is a perfect one for stamping in a row. The flowerstamps are from Ruby Rose by Papertrey Ink as well as the sentiment, banner from Avery Elle (did you mention I used it on almost every card I posted in the previous weeks - I'm in love with the set!)
Today a new challenge starts over at the Crazy for CAS blog. This week's theme is ribbon/twine. Not that difficult, I suppose. I use twine quite often in a simple way. Just to finish of my cards. That is what I did today as well. I like to use it at the top of a card:
The flower stamps are from Papertrey Ink, banner from Avery Elle, design paper from Studio Calico, sentiment from Joy!crafts.
Hop quickly to the CFC blog for more details on this challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!
I couldn't resist these stamps from Lawn Fawn when I did some web shopping last week. I ordered the Let's Polka paper pad as well. Both products are great ingredients for children's cards! Here's the first one:
Little by little I can allow myself more time for creativity! My thesis has been handed in and I'm now waiting for the last round of feedback and a date when I can defend it. This week I have to finish one subject and with that it is all over! Well, for this schoolyear so to speak, as I have enrolled for another study after the summerbreak. However, that is far away, first we are going to enjoy the summer. And some craft time. I try to get back to the routine of reading blogs and looking at pinterest. Yesterday and also this morning I have visited many of you. Sorry, if I didn't leave you a comment, but I saw many beautiful creations! Thanks for sharing and giving me bits of inspiration.
I have to say it feels a bit weird sitting at my desk surrounded by all kinds of materials and having not the faintest idea what to do and to create. I was looking forward to playing with my 6x6 paper pads, but ideas are lagging behind... I have to get used to the materials again!
So, yesterday I started quite simple by choosing some stamps, inks and sentiments and I came up with these easy-peasy cards! Same idea, but a different effect.
At the moment I haven't got any card in stock, so I think I am going to stamp on!
Enjoy your weekend and hopefully see you soon somewhere in blogland!
