Time for a new challenge at
with our lovely Marcia hosting a colour theme:
RED & BLACK
Such striking colours together and initially leaving me with a creative block...
I don't really have any very special Watercolour Cardstock, but my friend Vikki gave me a few sheets to try out and the Canson 300gsm worked beautifully with my most favourite stamp at the moment. Using my Misti I positioned the stamp over the card panel and spritzed the card with water, inked my stamp with red DI and stamped the image -- it worked beautifully with just enough water to blur the outline... I let it spread a tiny bit then carefully dabbed off the excess and let it dry. Then I re-inked the stamp (still in place in the Misti) and re-stamped the image which re-highlighted the outlines. When that dried I added some detail and depth with a sharp black coloured pencil.
To finish the card I added a fine black card layer to frame it on a deep red card and stamped the sentiment and white embossed it on a scrap of black card and attached this with foam tape.
I am also playing along with Penny Black Saturday Challenge February - Love is in the Air.
Hope you are inspired to pop on over to the CAS Watercolour blog and check out our guest designer Michelle's fabulous card and the wonderful cards created by the design team.
