I would like to welcome my 2 new followers Katy and Vicky hope you enjoy my cards and come along and try new techniques with me..
I stumbled on this one while I was peeking at blogs.
This one appealed to me and there is this water coloring technique I've been wanting to try.
Im delighted to find an Australian sketch to try at Just Add Ink
So here it is my take on this weeks sketch..
I embossed the flowers on the left with clear embossing powder.. The flower on the right I used markers to color and tried to highlight some of the middle parts..
I then sprayed it with water and stamped. This is new to me I've never done it before but thought it turned out ok.
I then got my new inkssentials blending tool out and sponged away on it all.
So hope you like it...
Cardstock .........White, Creative memories Navy blue
