Happy Friday, blog visitors, hope you’ve had a good week.
Today’s project began when I needed to make a thank you card with a seaside theme. By the way, I did not realise the photographs were so terrible, don’t know what I did. It doesn’t help that the project was so dark.
Take one: Watercolour paper coloured with distress inks & stamped with Crafty Individuals & Creative Expressions stamps. Did not like. Too dark & the scallop shell stamps in the centre were a big mistake.
Take two: Started adding paint through assorted stencils. Still not liking.
Take three: More paint, then Perfect Pearl mists. Then splatted assorted distress stains. Thinking it has possibilities.
Take four: Stamped the starfish stamp with Versacolor trio ink – gold, silver, copper.
Take five: Cut a section using a Spellbinders ‘Fleur de Lys’ die, mounted it onto Kraft card, then onto white cardstock.
Not too bad in the end. It had a lovely shimmer, which can’t be seen here. I sent it to my friend, Jen & I might ask her to see if she can take a better photo.
Thanks for looking, have a nice weekend.
Love & light
