… Make a Splash!
I’m just loving this cute little stamp set “Message in a Bottle“. So many ideas, so little time! It is perfect for all occasions! In fact, when I first saw this stamp set, I knew what I had to create with it. It has taken me some time, but am happy with the result.
I wanted to show my “Cards @ Toogoom” class how much fun it is to play with the Watercolour Paper , Aqua Painters & water & I mean water as we really wet our paper. It also doubled as my card for our challenge over on our FB Page.
I did start out sponging Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette & Night of Navy but it wasn’t giving me the result I wanted so I switched over to Powder Pink, Fresh Fig & Tranquil Tide! I then watched the magic happen as no 2 pieces will ever end up the same.
Splotches of water was then splashed over the dry Watercolour Paper to take some of the water away. I splashed the Clear Wink of Stella over the top before die cutting with the Stitched Shapes Framelits by running through the Big Shot.
I used Archival Basic Black Ink to stamp my mermaid onto Watercolour Paper. She was coloured with Powder Pink (skin), Lemon Lime Twist (hair), Fresh Fig (cap & bra) & Tranquil Tide for the tail along with an Aqua Painter. Between the colouring of different inks, I let them dry as I didn’t want the colours to run into each other.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
