Good afternoon and how are you today?
It is dreich here today, looking more like April than June. Not a very nice walk on the beach this morning, windswept and interesting would be the best way to describe it, on the upside, it looks like perfect surfing weather.
Today I wanted to start my card making with a card for my niece whose birthday is later this week.
Now she is a very grown up for her age, as girls tend to be so I decided on a very grown up card.
This is not a normal card for me but I'm sure she will like it.
I have used watercolour card and Distress inks Squeezed lemonade, Spiced marmalade and Picked raspberry. The stamp is by SU and has been stamped twice, once direct to the card and then on acetate. This is not my usual colour palette but I have gone for colours that my niece likes.
I'm not sure what I was wanting from this card. I love looking at other crafters watercolour cards but feel I never quite get the "look". The picture in my head is never the same as reality.
I guess practise is the key!
Do I use more water or less to make the ink more fluid?! The balance is the key.
Mmmm, I not 100% happy but then I am always very critical of anything I do, expecting perfection all the time can sometimes be hard to live up to.
I have a couple more cards to make for friends today so after lunch is made I plan on another easy afternoon playing, sorry crafting. Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday, and stay warm and dry.
