Still on my holidays so fingers crossed this post has published! This week's special offer from Papermilldirect is a wonderful ivory 300gm embossed felt card. The weight and texture are wonderful, here is what I made with it.
As this beautiful card resembles watercolour card I wanted a watercolour effect on these under the sea subjects. I stamped the seahorse and shells (Crafty Individuals C1-272) in Archival sepia and coloured them with a brush, water and antique photo distress ink with a little spiced marmalade added to the 3D seahorse and shell. The seahorse and shells were masked before creating the sea with a Memory Box stencil and broken glass distress ink. As I had the sewing machine out (the granddaughter wants me to make her a dress with some lovely butterfly fabric she saw the other day) the zigzag stitching was added and some sequins for sparkle.
For this card I used a technique from one of Tim's tags, distress paint, ink and stain for the background and distress markers for the watercololuring on the dragonfly. Stamps are from Stampers Anonymous.
Back next week, see you then with some more DT samples.
