Greetings my inky friends, I hope you are doing well! I am great, having a busy week but enjoyable so far. Thursday’s are Stampin’ Up! Artisan blog hops and they seem to roll around faster and faster, I had a horrible moment with this round! I made my project on the weekend and yesterday when I went to take the photo I realised I had used a retired product which you can’t do for the Artisan hop, so I was up pretty late trying to come up with a new card, WHY is it when we need to create something fast our stampin’ mojo goes missing! My card looks pretty simple but I played around for 9 hours trying to create something I “kind” of liked, I stamped SO many Indescribable Gift images and coloured them in several different ways, I totally love this stamp set but I was not creating anything that did the amazing illustration justice.
Above you can see I have kept it very simple after all that work, I have white embossed the image on watercolour paper and using a watercolour brush I have laid down Soft Sky Re-inker with water. Along the top is a little Stacked with Love Washi and a thin strip of Champagne Glimmer Paper. The greeting is stamped in Jet Back StazOn, which is the only ink that will not resist the white embossing and I should note the greeting is from Butterfly Basics, it is a beautiful Happy Birthday image.
Above you can see inside the card, I got a little excited and watercoloured pretty much the whole surface, the top right corner has a little embossed bloosom and the washi with glimmer along the bottom. Long time reader’s know I LOVE the inside of my cards to look as pretty as the front of my cards.
The next stop on the Artisan blog hop is Vicky
