Welcome to March and a new challenge at One-Layer Simplicity that I am hosting this month. The theme I have chosen is:
JUST ADD WATER
I love combining inks with water; the effects are wonderful and look like watercolouring. The edges are softer and the colours blended. My favourite inks for this technique are of course, Distress inks. They are waterbased and blend so well.
So, onto my card. I am longing for Spring, so I got out my Pretty Peony flower set from Stampin Up that I have had forever and inked the flowers with Distress ink. This set is a 2-step set so by stamping the lighter colour first, the flower becomes very defined when the darker colour is stamped over that. I use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the images into the right position and sprayed with water before stamping. I did the same thing to create the leaves too. When dry, I added the sentiment and then drew in the black line to pull the images all together.
Also adding my card to these challenges:
Little Red Wagon- YEARNING for SPRING
Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES
Simon Says- ADD PEARLS
Simply Create Too- SHOP IN YOUR STASH
Hope you get time to play along this month and give it a try.
