Hi everybody. I just have time to enter the CAS Watercolour Challenge which this month has the theme of Red and Black. I decided to make a stencil from a die using one from a Sizzix Mixed Media Set No. 3. There are three dies and I used the crackle corner. As I used the die as a stencil I also made this a second entry to the CAS Mix Up Challenge.
I cut out the die using a piece of copy paper and stencilled it using Black Soot Distress Ink on to a square piece of white card and heat embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I then used a flower stamp from a Pinkfresh set which came with a recent magazine. I stamped it using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and coloured it using some Staedtler Watercolour Brush Pens, a red and black. This is in fact the first time I have used them, and I applied the colour with the brush end and moved it around with my waterbrush. I then finished with a sentiment from the Pinkfresh set using the Nocturne ink and again heat set with the Clear Gloss EP and added this to the 6" square white card and added the flower adhering it with Pinflair Glue Gel.
Thank you for your visit today and I'll see you again soon.
I am also entering:
