Third post in One Day!

I really must be quick this time, because my DS wants the computer!

This card is for the Simon Monday Challenge - Scratched Up Challenge and the Simon Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Summer.




I stamped the Penny Black Petal Power daisy multiple times using distress inks. Once dry, I then spritzed the image and painted the blue background, letting the colours bleed for a watercolour effect. Then I went over the image with inktense pencils for some hi-lights. I stitched the border and distressed the edges with a metal ruler and my thumb. To finish off, I mounted the water-colour paper on a kraft card base, stamped the greeting (Winnie & Walter) and added some sequins.

  1. This card is absolutely beautiful! I love the watercolour look and if I didn't know, I would say you'd stamped onto canvas ~ there's just so much wonderful texture! I love it and thank you so much for sharing your project and for joining us over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog! :) ~Emma x
