Here is another one of my watercoloured cards that I have completed this week. This one is done by embossing the images with white embossing power onto white shimmer cardstock, I have used Regal Rose and So Saffron inks to get the two toned effect. I just love this technique you can use lots of different colour combinations to achieve different effects, and this stamp set is a great one to use for it its Stampin Up of course and its name is Fifth Avenue Floral...

This week I have been playing with watercolouring using Stampin-Up Inks and my aqua painter both are using the Fifth Avenue Floral stampset the first one is done on watercolour paper stamped and water coloured with Baja Breeze Ink. The background is all the different stamps in that same set using Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss Inks..........

Thought I would start by posting a card that I had entered as one of the challenges in the Forum I am on (as it is about the only one that I have in my computer at present) I must remember now to take pics of the creations I make so that I can post them here. Those girls are going to be so proud of me for getting this up and running. I know its a bit basic at present but maybe I will become more clever as time goes on. So here is the first pic.........
Well welcome to my blog! This is my very first post and has been prompte by my friends on my Stampin Up Forum that have twisted my arm and convinced me that I NEED to be blogging.
I am still in the process of setting this up, so please bear with me as I endeavour to find my way around and work out how to enter things here. Back soon when I have worked out how things work.
