MOM!

Hello friends!
This is a surprising card for me... It includes water coloring! Well, at least making a background with water coloring. :) I created the gradient look with 1 green and 3 different blue Disteress Inks -I tapped some ink to an acrylic block and took the color with my water color brush. I'm stunned of how well this worked -it must be the DI:s -I've never succeeded this well with water color pencils. I believe my card qualifies for Virginia's fab challenge in her new challenge blog Virginia's View. Congratulations on your new blog, Virginia!

Are you admiring the stamped sentiment collage I've embossed with white? It's from a brand new STAMPlorations line called Subway Art Builders and the first set concentrates on the words and sentiments around the theme Mother. Check out the image below! The 5 sets are now on pre-release sale: if you order them before March 13th (the stamps are officially released March 14th) you'll get them with a 30 % discount: only 24.50 $ for all 5 sets (regular prize 35 $ for all 5 sets)! Read all about the offer and place your order here.

Apart from the water coloring and heat embossing my card is very straight-forward: some designer paper, a doily and punched flowers. I quite like how the very traditional elements look fresh with this contemporary stamp design and water colored background.

Before I wish you all a fun weekend I hope you'll pop by at TIME OUT Challenges: the second group of DT ladies is being introduced there today. It's only one week before the challenges start... I'm ready to take TIME OUT and craft! ;)

  1. Todella upea kortti! Tuo vesiväritausta on kaunis, susta alkaa kuoriutua esiin pieni akvarellisti ;)

  2. Love the soft watercolour background, Nonni! I find Inks far easier to watercolour with than paints too.

  5. Beautiful job with the inks Nonni. I'm not very good with watercolor pencils either. The gradient of color looks wonderful. Hugs!
