I promise the theme will change shortly as I have some new things to share with you starting next week! For today I thought I would share this card I made yesterday using a variation of a technique I saw on Facebook! We all get inspiration all over the place and I always like to share where I got it from however this was a random post.
I coloured on the media plate using true colour watercolour markers. I then sprized the plate with water then stamped the plate, using the press to impress, onto a piece of watercolour card. this results in the swirly colour background you can see here.
Next I added three of the silhouette stamps from my first release and coloured the stamps with the same markers. I stamped this which gives the different coloured flowers as shown ( i love the fact that silhouettes don't have to be just done in black!)
For the background piece I respired the media plate and got it very wet before stamping onto another piece of watercolour card. this gave a lot more misty piece which I stamped the butterflies and dragon flies on from the second release of stamps.
I added a panel of embossed card with the Crafts Too dandelion embossing folder and made up the sections to an 8x8" card blank.
There are 2 places for the full day that have become available at the Coventry workshop. If you missed to and are interested in the spaces please email Lockerscrafts@gmail.com
