I got my water colour paints out the other day
and had a little play.
This is the resulting card.
I started by giving the water colour card a wash
with a large wet paint brush to cover all over.
Then I just selected pinks and mauves and colour washed
to give a subtle background which I left to dry.
The stamp is by Imagination crafts which I stamped
using 'London Fog' to give a very light inpression and then
coloured in using the paints which I pulled out using more water.
I''m quite pleased with how it turned out.
Once competely dry I trimmed down and adhered to a purple base.
This in turn was adhered to a sheet of vellum that was
adhered to the mauve card base.
I used silver peel off stickers and then because
the card was for a swap which the theme was
'Use Something from the Trash to Recycle
I set about transforming a used bottle top.
This top was already a purple colour so
it didn't need painting. I already had some previously
made shrink plastic butterflies and this pink one
was not only the right colour but the right size too.
I simply placed a circle of purple card in the base of the
cap, popped in the butterfly and then commenced to put
several layers of glossy accents into the cap to fill it up.
As each layer went from an opaque to a clear as it set
I put another layer in.
Sentiment is a Britannia Die.
The card is in Australia now and my partner is a tad disappointed
that I hadnt' really used Fish Bones on the card as I had joked I would.
All I can say is Merry, watch this space!!!!
