You should have arrived here from Deepti - if you have become lost, it's ok. Just find the links below and start at the beginning.
Here is my card -
I started this panel off by laying ink pads directly onto an acrylic block, misting it with water and then pressing it onto my cardstock.
While the panel was still a little damp, I stamped down the left hand side with the Vignette: Christmas Block so it had the same watercoloured look.
Next I grabbed the bell from the Holiday Sketches: Christmas Bells set. I pressed red, green and yellow ink onto the stamp and then misted it with water before stamping it.
I let the panel dry overnight. The next morning I came back to it and really didn't like it to be honest. I started on something else and didn't have much luck. I picked up everything to throw it in the bin. I looked at this panel again and thought I actually quite like it, I just needed to do something else. Does that happen to you?
So, I grabbed my Star stencil (which you can purchase from STAMPlorations), inked over one corner and then inked up the edges of the panel.
I ended up really liking the finished result. Happy little accident - love them!
