Hugs To You

Hello everyone!! Here's a card that I made recently!


I recently won a challenge at Inspired By Stamping and I bought the Australian Nature stamp set with the GC. Thank you Joanna!! I love this orchid image from the set. I stamped it on a piece of regular cardstock and watercolored it with distress ink ripe persimmon and Hero arts Lime green ink. I should say that I'm kind of liking watercoloring on regular card stock because I feel that it gives me more control. Of course, I should take care not to use too much water, but it's been fun trying it out. I used distress ink broken china for giving a light shadow around the flowers. I also inked the edges of the die cut panel with broken china ink.


I used the sentiment from STAMPlorations - VIGNETTE: Art Deco Border Builders.

Thanks for stopping by. Your comments are very much appreciated.
