This morning I am being inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast called 'ELEMENTS'...show Wind, Water, Earth or Fire on your card. I tried to combine a few elements and show Earth and Water.
I began with a piece of watercolour paper and taped it to my board. I use a cutting board I bought at the dollar store. I find it helpful to tape my piece down when using water and paint.
Next, I sprinkled some Bister (http://ibrakeforstamps.com/bister.aspx ) onto my paper and sprayed with water. I am getting addicted to using those paints. I also sponged on some Distress ink to fill in the white areas.
When all was dry, I inked the leaves from Hero Arts with Stazon black ink and stamped. I stamped a script from Penny Black along the edge to add some depth to the background and then last but not least, the sentiment.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
Simon Says- BIRTHDAY
Simply Create Too- ANYTHING GOES
Crafting By Design- APRIL ANYTHING GOES
Chocolate Baroque- INSPIRATION
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Looking forward to a long weekend.
