Watering The Flowers
Today I thought I'd enter this card into the Belles 'n' Whistles Warm Colours Challenge. The main image is of course a Belles 'n' Whistles stamp called 'Watering', the papers are from the Double Dots range by Bo Bunny, the flowers are a mixture of Petaloo and punched out flowers and the flourishes and wording (stamped in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink) are from my Fancy Flourish stamp sheet.
I tinted the paper Petaloo flowers using a light orange coloured Copic so that they matched the card.
All of the products mentioned came from The Craft Barn.
Talking of Belles 'n' Whistles - for those of you who haven't seen it yet I have got a 4 page project in the (current) September issue of Craft Stamper using some of these delightful stamps along with Copic markers. The project concentrates on showing you different ways of grounding your imagery to give a more realistic result to standing/kneeling figures and in the next issue of the magazine (October), I have an article showing you a few more tricks on how to 'ground' sitting figures too.
