To you from me with Love


here is another card that I would like to show you.

I didn't use an image on this one - just the sentiment. For the strip on the right I used watercolor paper and Distress Inks with a lot of water. After drying you get this cool shading and texture. There is only one downside to this technique: you never know what you get ...

I will link this card up to the following challenges:

Moving along with the Times Challenge -  No Image

Just add Ink Challenge #216 - Just add Watercolour

Kartenkunst Techniques Challenge - Blitz-Colorieren

CAS(E) this Sketch #78

Sunday Stamps Challenge 77

Here is my list of supplies:
Mama Elephant - Confetti
Claudine Hellmuth Studio - Domestic
Distress Ink (Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Pumice Stone)

See you tomorrow.
