Tuesday Talk

Today's card is a birthday card for the challenge at Inkspirational and is something a bit different for me.

Here's my card:

Because I have a fear of using watercolours apart from smooshy sort of backgrounds I signed up for the new Online Card Classes Simply Watercolour workshop. And that's how my squared background for this card came about.  I simply die cut the finished pattern and added some black stamping and a die cut on top.

I bought the cheapest set of watercolour block paints I could find - wasn't sure if I'd take to it so didn't want to splash out! And yes I quite enjoyed creating this card, but we'll see where I go next.

Stamps: Uniko, All Occasion Sentiments #2; Clearly Besotted, In Stitches Easter
Ink: Versafine, onyx black

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, it's always lovely to have some company.

And keep crafting!

  3. A+++ on your fabulous patchwork background, Jane! Pretty and absolutely artsy awesome! Thrilled you shared this gem in the Inkspirational gallery! I really should sign up for this class, given how watercolour and I do *not* get along; maybe down the road. You've definitely inspired me!

  4. How lovely! Your background is so cool and unique. It looks great with the bold birthday sentiment. As always, thanks for sharing with us at Inkspirational!
