I was picked as the lucky winner of a Less is More Challenge a little while ago, and today I'm excited to be sharing a Guest Designer card for their new challenge:
Hmmm...now this initially had me stumped, but after looking through my stamps for inspiration, I decided to try some really watery watercolour stamping to see if if I could get some blurry...but not too blurry...images. I couldn't decide between butterflies, or flowers, so in the end made a couple of cards.
On the first, I used a set of Papermania butterfly stamps...stamping them on to dampened watercolour paper using the watercolour stamping technique and Distress Inks (Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire & Gathered Twigs). I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment (from the 'Sketched Flowers' set by Simon Says Stamp), distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.
On my second card, I used the same technique, but this time with my 'Agapanthus Clusters' stamp (by Stampendous) and more Distress Inks (Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, Bundled Sage & Forest Moss). I used another of the sentiment stamps from the 'Sketched Flowers' set (by Simon Says Stamp), distressed the edges a little, then matted the panel on to some navy card.
For lots more inspiration from the awesome design team, don't forget to visit the Less is More Challenge...thanks so much for having me ladies!
