"Every Tree" Crafter's Companion
Taking a quick break from all the Christmas cards to show off this pretty card I made for Crafter's Companion using my Spectrum Aqua's in a little different way. I applied them directly to this beautiful stamp from Sheena Douglas's "As Scene on Screen" set called "Wouldn't it be lovely". After stamping it on the Spectrum watercolor paper, I used a brush dipped in water to lightly spread the ink around a bit giving it the water colored look but still having the strong lines of design from the stamp. I love this technique!
I also used another stamp from Sheena Douglas from her "A Little Bit Scenic" sets called "Silhouette Grasses" for the sentiment. I fussy cut around part of the stamp area, then finished off the oval shape to create the framed window affect. Adding a few layers of cardstock and a pretty ribbon and bow completed the look.
My Crafter's Companion supplies were:
Spectrum Aquas - Leaf green, Spice, Desert, Marigold, ScarletStamp - Sheena Douglass - As Scene on Screen, Wouldn't it be lovely and A Little Bit Scenic, Silhouette Grasses
Spectrum Aqua water color paper
This card will be put in some challenges just for grins!
