Hello! Happy New Year!!!! I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and are now ready to kick off 2017 :)
Today is the start of the brand new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers! It is our watercolour challenge. We are very excited about this one. It has been months in the making and we also have new designers joining our team. You can see all the details over at the HLS blog.
Our theme for January is
Anything Goes! That's right - just make sure you use watercolouring or a watercolouring technique on your entry. You also have the option to use a stencil.
I have made two cards both with our optional twist.
My first card was created by using the Brusho and Stencil technique and watercolour paper. I LOVE doing this.
The stamps I have used are from the HLS Wish you were Here set.
My next card uses the stencil flipped over and pressed onto normal cardstock. It gives your background a more subtle look but still so pretty.
I die cut my sentiment using gold card. There are a few little touches of Perfect Pearls on this one too.
Here is my video tutorial on how to create these types of backgrounds. I made about 10 while doing these cards and save them for later.
There are also a LOT of video tutorials over at HLS if you need some help with ideas.
I hope to see you playing along.
We are also very lucky to have Barb as our Guest Designer for this month's challenge. Make sure you stop by and say hello to her as well!
Thanks for coming by and I will see you over at the challenge blog :)
