Tuesday Talk

Had a go at a new to me technique yesterday as it's the theme at two of my favourite places to play - Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge and Less is More.

http://www.happylittlestampers.com/2016/06/hls-june-cas-challenge_3.html      We'd love you to display our banner

Here's my card:


How surprised are you about the colours? Mmm, thought not! So I started by brushing those colours in diagonals across some watercolour card. Then I spritzed the stamp with water and placed it fairly randomly blotting up the excess ink as I went along.


The addition of a die cut happy on a black banner and the a stamped birthday and I was done.

Supplies:
Stamps: HLS, Bold Birthday Sentiments; Stamplorations, Seashell Cosmo
Inks: Ranger distress, wilted violet, mermaid lagoon, picked raspberry; Memento, tuxedo black
Die: Clearly Besotted, happy

Thanks for visiting today, I'm really pleased you found the time.  And keep crafting!

  4. Those colours just flow into each other and so unusual to apply them diagonally. Fab sentiment arrangement too.
