Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! I hope your having a good day.
I'd like to show you a card I made today using stamps and distress inks to create a watercolour effect by scribbling with distress markers and pressing distress ink pads onto an acrylic block, misting lightly with water and then inking the stamps from there.
I began by stamping the pots and used a brush and water to spread the colour. The leaves were stamped next and then the flowers. The flowers are a two part stamp which makes it easier to achieve a watercolour.effect.
Would like to link uip to a few challenges. at Less Is More it's One Layer Thank You card, One Layer Simplicity Challenge would like to see cards with flowers and STAMPlorations May challenge: Stamps and Flowers.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for your comments which are so appreciated! Have a great rest of the day. xxx

Hi everyone, hope all is well with you. Would like to show you a card I've made for a few challenges. I stamped the flowers in black Memories Ink and coloured with Promarkers.
Inspiration for layout taken from Vicki's Muse #66 card, theme and colours from ColourQ #240, Inkspirational #55 - Pink and Green and STAMPlorations - May challenge: Stamps and Flowers.
This is actually "mark 2" of the card. The first one had some twine and a different sentiment, however after DH told me the sentiment (which was placed just above the flowers) looked like a "weird spiders web" I decided I had to redo it! I have to admit I do struggle with getting a sentiment in the right place so I hope this looks OK.
Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day xx

Hi everyone, I hope you are well and had an enjoyable Bank Holiday!
It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More and this week our theme is CAS (Clean and Simple). Our fabulous sponsor is Stamp Art Design and there is a prize of five free digis for our Top Addict!
My DT card was inspired by a few challenges. Firstly, the theme at Addicted to CAS is Grunge. I don't make many grunge cards but wanted to have a go. I've used the colours from CAS Colours and Sketches and would also like to link up to Less Is More who would like to see 3 colours or 3 shades of one colour.
Do check out the fabulous inspiration from the other DT ladies over at the ATSM challenge blog and we look forward to seeing your beautiful CAS creations!
