This card was so easy to stamp using the MISTI.  I love how you can use a few different stamps at the same time, ink them up and stamp them.  It was so much easier doing the leaves and placing them all in the right places.  I went back over my stamping with a wet paintbrush to soften it.

The butterflies are from a stamp set from Clearly Besotted stamps which they gave away as a free gift a while back.

You can see a list of everything I used below !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great day !

I love this stencil which has lots of clock faces on it.  You can use the whole stencil or just choose a clock face !  I chose just one clock face and used transparent embossing paste on it.

Hello my Friend

Here I am back with my second DT project for Kuretake UK !

Keeping in with the Spring theme, I made this card :




Firstly, I stamped the flower image onto the watercolour card.


Using Gansai Tambi watercolours, I watercoloured the flowers.  The colours I used were :

Dark pink (34)
White (10)
Carmine red (35)
Mid green (53)

After the flowers were painted, I lightly painted around them using cornflower blue (61) and vintage photo distress ink which I watered down so it was very pale.


I coloured the inside of a well of my paint pallette with a Wink of Luna silver pen, and then using a paint brush, I added splats of silver to my card.  I made sure my brush was quite wet so the ink would "splat" !


Using the Wink of Stella pink and Wink of Stella green pens I went back over areas of my flowers to give more depth of colour and also sparkle.  So that the colour wasn't too intense, I diluted the colour a little with a wet paint brush.

The subtle sparkles on this card from the Wink of Luna and Wink of Stella pens is just perfect.


After assembling the card I finished it off by adding the sentiments and a sprinkle of silver sequins.  I used the Zig Two Way Glue Pen for attaching the die cut sentiment and the sequins.  This pen is fantastic.  You only need a dot of glue which holds things fast and leaves no residue on the card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my second project.

Thank's for popping by !
