Guest Designer


I was preveledged to win yet again on STAMPlorations sketch #10 challenge. Here is my post on the canvas I created for that sketch.

I am happy to say that I am Guest Designer for the June 2 sketch #13 challenge and here is my card I created to inspire you.


The inside

The back


This is the sketch #13


At the moment I love working with distress inks and water. All I can say is wow, how the inks react with water, so many outcomes, and by surprise too.

That is what happened with this card, I sponged with dusty concord onto water colour paper and I wanted a sprinkle of water droplets all over, but check it out there is blobs of water as well. I guess it all depends how you spray your water. I achieved this by using small spritzer and spraying from above.

I used STAMPlorations clear stamps - distressed floral swirls. I coloured the leaves with water coloured pencils (no water) and stamped sentiment also from STAMPlorations - Patchwork Frenzy graphic pentagons. Finally added some bling.

I wanted to co ordinate the inside and back as well, so I stamped the distressed leaves and coloured them as well.

I really enjoyed creating this card and I hope you will be inspired to make a different view of the sketch too.

Do not forget to check out the Design Teams wonderful works of art as well.


Cheers and Have Fun Creating

Just is my Birthday on the 3rd June. Happy Birthday To Me !!
