They are inspirational stampers
Today's card is my DT card for the CCC Digi Creations Challenge #26
- Layer it Up
Our sponsor is Oak Pond Creations
I have used the image Flower Jug
The image prints out in a fine gray line, which enticed me to watercolour it, using Lyra watercolour crayons and a very fine brush. The Lady bug image on the jug was stamped, using one of the first stamps that I purchased...
There was a "dreaded blot" on the image panel after painting it, and thanks to Carpel Tunnel syndrome I could not repeat the painting, so added some fine splats all over the image to give it a 'painterly look' as I have heard it called.
My layers of ribbon were also placed strategically to cover another wee oops... this was one card that did not want to be made easily. I added a doily that I cut in vellum, then in half and offset the halves behind the die cut.
The sentiment was stamped repeatedly across the bottom, centering the first impression, then working out from there in both directions. All edges were sponged with Bundled Sage DI
Some flat back pearls in green scattered around as a finishing touch.
