Hello Friday and hi to all of you!
Here in Queensland it is stinking hot and humid but there is a storm on the way. I hope we get some rain as we really need it.
Today I saw the challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch and knew that I had to put my STAMPlorations Vignette: Eclectic Florals to work.
Here is my card -
I have been experimenting over the last couple of days with my stamping. I have some scheduled posts that will be showing these techniques - in particular water spritzing my stamp before pressing it onto the paper (I'm sure there is a technical term for this, lol).
I was having a chat with Florence and told her I couldn't believe that I hadn't used water directly on my stamps before as I love the effect it gives. Watercolouring for cheats - LOVE it!!
Florence said I should also try glossy cardstock as well as watercolour paper. So I did!
I have inked up my stamps, spritzed them with water and then stamped onto glossy cardstock. To create the look that my flowers are IN the jars, I made a small mask for the top of the jar and stamped right over it.
The little xxxxx stamp is from the STAMPlorations Patchwork Frenzy: Graphic Squares set.
Here is the sketch to play with -
I would also like to enter the following challenges -
The Kraftyhands Challenge - Spring Flowers (2nd entry)
Thanks so much for looking xx
