Floral Water colour ...

Today I put my new skill of procrastination to one side and decided to try out a couple of new techniques I've seen on You Tube.  The first technique is loose water colouring an image first stamped using a light distress inks and when the image is dry stamping the image again using black ink.  The technique was demonstrated by Carolyn Peeler for the Ellen Hutson's classroom - the image she created is amazing, although not as good I am quite pleased with my first attempt!

I used:
STAMPlorations - The Birds and the Blooms
Versafine Onyx Black
Distress Inks - Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Crushed Olive
Sizzix Tim Holtz Mixed Media Dies

I am entering the following challenges:

CAS Colours and Sketches #188 - it's simply ages since I entered this challenge but the sketch inspired me to have a go.

  1. Wonderful card! Love your interpretation of the sketch - the die cut corner is so cool! Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!

  2. Elaine - I'm glad that you found your way back to CAS Colours & Sketches. I really love the die cut you've used as the background part of the sketch, very clever. Liz x

  3. The latticework is so pretty, and so is that flower! I'm glad you gave our sketch challenge a try, and I hope you'll join us again soon at CC&S!

  4. This is so pretty ... love the trellis in the background. Thanks for playing along with the STAMPlorations CAS challenge xx
