I Fell In Love ................. :o)



......... with this stamp set! Actually I fell in love with a card Sara made. Have a look at her post and scroll down - you will see the one I mean :) Absolutely gorgeous! I love the black and red .... and the flower is just perfect. I had to buy the stamp set ... it's just beautiful!

Above is my first version of the card. I have a very sick friend at the moment and decided to make a card for her. This was my very first attempt at watercolouring with .... well anything really as I haven't tried it before .... but this was with Ink Pads and Aqua Painter Brushes.

Cardstock ........ Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red
Stamp Set ........ Bloomin' With Beauty
Ink .............. Real Red, Garden Green, So Saffron, Black Stazon
Other Products ... Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware
Technique ........ Watercolouring with Ink Pads
Sentiment created using the computer.

I've always loved red and black together. I think it's a superb, dramatic colour combination. Working on this card also inspired another card for one of the online classes/challenges that Stamp With Us have been doing this month. This one was to make a Christmas Card within a certain time limit.

This is the one I made ........



Cardstock ........ Basic Black, Real Red
Stamp Set ........ Season Of Joy, Best Yet
Ink .............. Basic Black, Versamark
Other Products ... Black Embossing Powder, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter
Technique ........ Heat Embossing

There ....... my first Christmas card ..... done! :o) xx
