When I was stamping the other images from a previous post I stamped this one as well. One lesson learnt: It is very important to stamp the image in Stazon if you intend to watercolour to prevent the ink from running. Hence, the purple mark in the water. Buy hey, I think it looks like reflection from her pants!!!
I used inkpads and aquapainters to watercolour the image in Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. I used an Old Olive marker to ink up just the word ‘happiness’ on the text stamp in this set. I matted this on Old Olive. I used a strip of Bali Breeze DSP and matted that on Old Olive as well. The base is Elegant Eggplant. It may not show up too well, but I paper pierced around the image. I have enjoyed watercolouring these images from this set and I will be sad to see it go at the end of the month.
While I had the paper scraps out I whipped up another card for my niece’s birthday next month. Early for a change!! I cut a strip of the Pumpkin Pie DSP and mounted it on Ruby Red card. I sponged around the edge with Ruby Red and stamped the text from ‘Sincere Salutations’. I mounted this on Tempting Turquoise base. This is not a colour I have used very much but it goes well with the paper. I cut out the flower images on the reverse of this ‘Bali Breeze’ sheet and adhered them to the bottom of the card. The flower brad is not SU and I can’t quite remember what brand it is – Sorry. This card didn’t take long at all.
I just received my new stamps that demonstrators can preorder from the new catalogue. It is very exciting. I have been getting them inky so I will show them to you next time.
