Here's my card - I saw tutorial by Paula Pascual in Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine and had to try it! I've been looking at everyone's Distress Ink water colouring tutorials and fancied a go, then when I saw the backgrounds that could be made, I decided to get myself a few! (And they were on eBay so actually quite a bargain after all!) She used a beautiful Hero Arts stamp (which I bought too!) so I adapted it to use for this challenge. I stamped and embossed in white then swirled around with the blending tool and a few inks (colours below), and added a few glitter highlights. I thought it only fair to use one of Paula's sentiment stamps! The shape it's stamped onto is also a newbie, it's a Kars punch with 4 different label shapes. The shapes are all a bit smaller than I thought but I love this one anyway! I made 2 copies of this image in case one went wrong which meant there were a few leftover bits so I made another card, I'll save that for another day. I have to say, I'm pretty chuffed! Although don't look too closely - you may see some inky finger splodges!
This card is also for this weeks Spoonful of Sugar which is Blue & Green and Top Tip Tuesday which is to use a Sentiment.
Cripes, I've rambled a bit - thanks for looking!
