Florals challenge

Did someone say 'Florals'? Most of my favourite stamps have some variety of flowers. I decided to combine a Winnie and Walter stampset with sentiment from Hero Arts for the current A Blog named Hero Florals challenge. I inked up an acrylic block with some Distress Inks, spritzed with some water and invert it over a watercolour card. I tried several times before I perfected the technique. I had drips from the block, not enough water, ink oozing out the side (I tried wiping it and created a mess on the white space)... I was happy to finally see this card finished. Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Stamps- Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Happy, Winnie and Walter In Bloom - Addie's Garden
Inks- Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord and Mermaid Lagoon
Dies - Hero Arts

Altenew July Inspiration


I have a card to share based on the colours of the current July Inspiration Challenge from Altenew and the current sketch on CAS(E) this sketch. For the background, I used strips of the patterned paper from  Echo Park mounted on dimensional tape. The flower and leaves were stamped on white carsick and then fussy cut. I only managed one completed card this weekend! Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Paper - Echo Park Wedding Bliss
Stamps - Altenew Beautiful Day
Inks - Altenew Frosty Pink, Ruby Red and Velvet, Hero Arts Green Hills and Simon Says Stamp
Others - PPP Clear Drops

Blue Hydrangeas

After seeing a few blue cards posted recently, I was inspired to do one as well. This card was made with Distress Inks on water colour card. I wanted to colour in the negative space as there is a fair bit of detailing on the stamp which I wanted to leave untouched. I've also inlaid a die cut from Winnie and Walter. I'm adding this card to the current A Blog Named Hero Florals challenge with Winnie & Walter. Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Stamps - Hero Arts and Winnie & Walter
Inks - Distress Inks Chipped Sapphire and Broken China, Hero Arts Navy
Dies - Winnie and Walter and MFT Stitched Rectangles
Others - PPP clear drops
