Love You Watercolour Card

Faux Hand-Painting is the topic on days 7 and 8. Most of the instructors used flower stamps, but I'm not a big fan of flower stamps so my stash is limited. Instead I did what Debby Hughes did and went on a completely different route. While she used stamps of balloon in her lesson, I used alphabet stamps from Simon Says Stamp - Sketched Alphabet.

I stamped the letters individually using Distress Inks and then painted them using the re-inkers.

After I finished painting the letters I added splatters of Distress Ink in Brushed Pewter. It's difficult to see in the picture, but the silver paint splatters look quite cool in real life. I also added some enamel dots for added texture and colour.

Thanks for visiting,
Cheryl ~
