i know what your thinking 'Ohhh my goodness hope Aileens' not going to post six cards to make up for the six days missed'. Nah don't worry just this one more for today.
I so enjoy using this stamp set and the fact that it comes with the dies as well makes it so easy to use. I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder onto watercolour card stock.
I have used my Peerless watercolours (getting low in some of my colours and since the Borrowers have taken my top up sheets I may have to get back into my Distress Inks. They are wonderful paints to use and so easy to take when travelling or babysitting. Ahh well you never know maybe those little fella's will return them now I have mentioned them :)
Of course after watercolouring I then gave the flowers a good little coating of Wink of Stella but cant quite manage to catch the glitter here).
Something I didn't notice till I was taking the photos was that I had forgot to put a thin line of grey under the vase to ground it. But I will fix that when I go home.
I love that these flowers come with the dies as the Tim Holtz watercolour paper is that bit thicker and harder to fiddle around with for fussy cutting.
I have used a 'thanks' die and cut in gold foil cardstock and then stamped this sentiment 'you are better than summer sunshine' which I think is a wonderful compliment to a friend.
The black acrylic dot is not really black but red. Yes it's really red and I added it so I had all the colours of the rainbow which is really important according to the rules of 'Elysha'. 'You have to have all the colours mum' so I added the red dot that actually now looks black.
I am hoping I have interpreted this challenge correctly using the layers of die cut watercolour paper etc for the card.
Its been awhile so its nice to catch up here again.
Thanks for coming to visit and I hope to see you again soon.
