Welcome to my first Stampstories blog hop & today we are sharing inspiration using the theme ‘Watercolour’
I love watercolouring and I knew the By The Bay Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set would be perfect for playing about with the aqua painter and some inks. I am yet to use the large image from this set but will be making lots more with this set for sure.
For the background I have just added a wash of water and then some lines of both Blueberry Bushel and Gray Granite across the card. Once dry I have cut out the watercolour card stock with the large Rectangle Stitched Framelit (Page 28 of the Spring/Summer Catalogue)
I have stamped the sea shell image with Staz-On and added a little water and some drops of Gray Granite Ink with the aqua painter, I have also hared some tiny touched of BlueBerry Bushel.
Once dry I added the sentiment and die cut out with the circle form the Stitched Circle Framelits. The next step was to punched either side with the 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch to create holes for the Linen Thread to tie through.
I have tied this through the right hand side and wrapped both piece of thread around the card, back through the left hand side and tied up in to a bow.
I shall now pass you over to my lovely friend Linda – Enjoy the hop around all the watercolour inspiration!
