Today I'm sharing a card I've just made, initially for the CASology challenge but I've also found a few more challenges to combine which are listed below.
The challenge this week at CASology has the cue word 'Float'. Here I've used a waterlily stamp from a Clearly Besotted set I've had for some time, but I'd not yet inked up this particular stamp.
I used the waterlily die to cut out some watercolour paper. I then stamped the co-ordinating waterlily in grey ink as I thought black may be too harsh for a watercolour image. In hindsight I think I should have used something even paler. I then squished my green, pink and yellow inks onto an acrylic block and coloured in the image using a waterbrush. I used some fishtail flag dies to cut out three pieces of patterned paper and layered these up before adhering the waterlily on top using 3D foam. I stamped the sentiment in the same grey ink and finished off with a few 'water droplets' of glossy accents.
