So last week I got as far as making the card but didn't get to photographing and blogging about it in time - so you will have to see that one another day. Today I wanted to just slip in an entry for this week's challenge. Its CAS Watercolouring. For this I thought I'd crack out my brand spanking new stamps that are in the new summer mini catalogue which launches May 1st!!
Romance Framed Flowers
Stamp Set: Bordering on Romance, Tiny Tags
Ink: Black Stazon, Island Indigo, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, Pear Pizzazz
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Watercolour Paper
Punches: Jewellery Tag, Corner Rounder
Big Shot: Designer Frames
Accessories: Island Indigo Baker's Twine
I started by watercolouring the flowers using one of SU's paint brushes (they hold water in the handle) - they're fab!! I then cut it out with the frame in the big shot. I stamped the borderline of flowers on some Baja Breeze cardstock in Island Indigo and stamped it 3 times without re-inking for a progressively lighter pattern. I rounded the corners and adhered the card together. Finally I added some baker's twine and some faux stitching!
Really hope you enjoyed this sneak peek! For a bit of a preview of the new catalogue and products I am holding a special preview party on Monday April 30th at 7:30-9:30pm. If you bring along a friend I haven't crafted with before I have a special little gift for you and your friend! I am also holding a super give-away on the night! To be in it there are several ways to earn give-away tickets on the night -
