More Inky...

Happy Thursday,

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.

The original technique was adding watercolour pens to a piece of plastic and scrunching this over a p[iece of wet card.  I thought what a great idea for the media plate so I changed it.

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


Enjoy...

  1. Morning John, another super card, love the way the colours have wrapped around the plants, the light blue round the outside is so effective.

    PS I got some of my order yesterday, stamps, masks and large media plate (which I had pre-ordered separately) but still waiting for the Hochanda order, I have had a moan at them but I doubt it will get anywhere.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
