CAS on Sunday Challenge Week 16 - Welcome Home

The challenge at CAS on Sunday this week is to make a 'New Home' themed card and this is my version using a cute little stamp that I have had for ages.

I hope you like it . . . 

New Home

The dog was stamped on to a tag and coloured with watercolour pencils.  I then used  some co-ordinating paper from Craftwork Cards to paper piece the house and to finish off.

Perhaps this could only be sent to a dog lover - but then who doesn't like dogs?

That is all for now

Thanks for visiting

Less is More Challenge Week 135 - Use a Rubber Stamp

The challenge at Less is More this week is to use a rubber stamp with watercolours if possible. The design team joining in is from Penny Black - you can find loads of inspiration on the Penny Black Blog.

The watercolour aspect of this is a bit of a challenge for me as I have been trying to master the art for years without much success but I did find it a slightly easier using Distress Inks.

This is the final result . . . .

Thinking of You

The rubber stamp is a very old one from The Stamp Man and the sentiment is from LOTV.

I stamped the image with Distress Ink 'Aged Mahogany' and 'Shabby Shutters' on to watercolour paper and then using a damp brush I hoped for the best and pulled the colour in from the edges of the image hopefully giving a watercolour effect.

That is all for now. 

Hope you have a good weekend.

Thanks for visiting.
