Think I'm just in time to enter the Happy Little Stampers latest challenge which is watercolouring and also the sketch challenge over at Less is More. Here is the sketch:
I had a bit of a play with my Brushos and some watercolour paper - this stuff is absolute magic and you never know what you're going to get, so it can be a bit hit and miss but definitely lots of fun! Here is what I came up with:
After I'd made a piece of background paper I dried it with my heat gun and then put it between two reams of cardstock overnight to straighten it out.
First I took the second smallest of my Lil'Inker Stitched Circle dies and die cut a circle from the centre of the watercolour paper. I then positioned my Die-namics Fishtail Flags largest die and placed it over half the negative circle and partially die cut it as I didn't want the bottom pennant to cut. I then took it out of my Big Shot and turned the die round so the straight line would cut, wiggled the die around until I felt it "bite" so I knew it was in the right place, and put it through again to finish the cutting. I decided to also cut the smallest stitched circle die to put on top of the larger circle. I then took the bluebell stamp from Clearly Besotted Fresh Flowers set and a butterfly and the sentiment (stamped with Versafine Purple ink) from Clearly Besotted Elegant Butterflies set and stamped with Versamark ink and then used my silver detail e/p over the top and heat set.
Apologies for the photo but whichever way I tried it not all the silver embossing showed so ended up propping the card up slightly...........so the angle may look a little bit odd.
Thanks for stopping by - all your comments are very much appreciated.
