Stampin’ Royalty #263 & Cardabilities #115

Hey Everyone

I dragged myself away from watching the tennis to create a couple of cards today.  The first one is for two challenges – Stampin’ Royalty colour challenge and the Cardabilities sketch challenge.



I had a bit more time than usual today to play around with techniques.  I’m the first to say that I’m technique challenged as I really don’t get time watch videos or search the internet to find them.  I wanted to create a kind of watercoloured background. I started by taking Hello Honey & Sahara Sand Inks and randomly stamped the pads directly to a non-stick craft mat.  I then spritzed the ink with water and then placed my Whisper White card stock directly onto the ink.  This is the effect I achieved after I dried it off with my heat tool. I inked up Stampin’ Up!s Dictionary and finger walked it so that it only stamped on certain bits of the background. I’m pretty happy with the effect!
