I've got a spot in my heart...

Mama Elephant have some gorgeous new fun stamps out and they are so CUTE!  I wanted to try a style outside my usual and also have a play with the many, many, many Distress Inks that I own......
Very different for me and I was so scared being splash happy with the colouring, but I really liked the end product.  This is a cute little stamp set!  Head on over to Scrapbook Boutique to see instructions and purchase any items used!!  Oh and I'm sure you've heard around blogland "Neenah white cardstock"  it is FABULOUS!!!!! excellent quality too!!

Angela ( that's me)

Now I have gone with two cards today.  Both are using the same stamp and watercolours and Distress Inks but both have very different styles.

This first one I have used watercolour paper and embossed the Hero Arts open flower with a white embossing powder and with Distress Inks, water and my craft mat I coloured the petals individually.  Then a quick lick of clear wink of stella gives a girly girl CAS look!

Then........  I  embossed the Hero Arts open flower again with a black embossing powder as I wanted a bolder look and with masking fluid  I also individually covered each petal.  I left it to dry for a while and then with a wash of watercolour, washed over the flower. The masking fluid will resist the watercolour and only colour where you haven't put it down.
Once the paint is dry, gently with your finger, roll the masking fluid off.  It should come off easily.
Bit more grungy and definitely not girly girl but we all get our inspiration for different aspects from the pic!

 anyway off to Ann's beautiful blog and see her gorgeous take on this month's challenge.

thanks for popping in  ♥♥♥
