Hi everybody. I am back with a card for the CAS Watercolour Card Challenge run by lovely Loll and Bonnie, and the theme this time is Something Blue. I have been seeing some really lovely cards made using a freebie stamp set from the latest Creative Stamping Magazine and saw it whilst in the supermarket and just couldn't resist with its seaside themed stamps and also some images of sea birds too, three stamp sets in all!
I stamped this lovely lady sunning herself on the beach using Versafine Majestic Blue ink and then heat embossed using Papermania Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. This is a brand I haven't used before but needed a new pot in a hurry and bought it in a local craft shop, but am happy enough with it so far.
I then coloured the image using three shades of blue Distress Inks, i.e. Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire, all applied with a waterbrush.
I finished by stamping a sentiment from the same set using the Majestic Blue ink and again heat embossed with the Clear EP.
Before I go I have to introduce a new follower called Val, who I'm sure lots of you will know, but if you don't I'm sure she would love you to go and visit her here. All the CAS Challenges run by Loll and Bonnie are open for a few more days so still time to get an entry in.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
