I just love water colouring stamped images with distress inks by Tim Holtz..
I made a similar background as the card on the previous post, just loving butterflies at the moment.
Here is the card
I used water colour paper, smooth side and inked up the following stamps. STAMPlorations (artiful flutters, thankful grateful - leaf, electric florals, it's all about you). KaiserCraft (bonjour - butterfly). Rubber stamps (flowers).
using distress inks (wild honey, dusty concord, spiced marmalade, crushed olive, shaded lilac, scattered straw, dried marigold, faded jeans) and memento (sweet plum) for the swirls.
I used water colour brush and coloured it all in with water, including the surrounding white areas. I stamped the sentiments glued them on design paper and again on single design paper. I put you are on pop dots to make stand out. The rest of sentiments on banners and glued on single colour design paper.
I put the completed design on single coloured blue design paper then onto base card adding dots with white gel pen to enclose the whole design.
For some bling I added some pearls to the flowers and an extra flower for some dimension.
It does look bright for a background, I should try one with lighter shaded, stamping off the image first.....
I keep thinking it is too much happening in this card....don't know! Self doubt..yuky....do you get moments like that, share your thoughts, if you like.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges.
