Happy Sunday to you all. Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the big bad internet… bad only because it can steal hours of my time without me realising! I know many of you can relate when you jump online to check emails and/or Facebook then end up on Pinterest a few hours later. With that being said, I do love the inspiration I receive from this time online.
Let me help you spend a little more time online getting inspired as you travel trough the INKspired blog hop for today. We have 9 cards all created around the sketch below, a sketch I designed to test the team, the intention is that the main panel is stamped then cut to make 2 pieces with the image carrying over both and a greeting along the bottom.
I will admit it made me think, I am suffering for the stampin’ blues at the moment, so I am not loving my card. The vision in my head was a little different to how it came out. Swallowtail is one of my favourite stamps, I just adore how large it is and the detail in the image.
I have kept it pretty simple in the respect that I have stamped the image in Basic Gray then water coloured using an Aqua Painter with ink from a squeezed Mint Macaron ink pad. I love the soft look of the watercolour wash over the image.
Regular readers would know on a INKspired blog hop I would normally lead into Barbara Willimas or as I call her Mum however as we celebrated our first birthday last fortnight I changed up the lineup for the next year, we are now going in last name alphabetical order which did not change my location as I am still at the end of the list… I really should have planned that better! Anyway, you are now off to visit with the hilariously funny Lisa Eaton
