Hi Everyone, I saw this stamp and as I had a birthday "offer" from the company, I decided to get it. OH! I am so pleased I did, it will be suitable for so many occasions and is wonderful to use. It set my mojo going I can tell you.
Anyhow, I decided to ink up some watercolour card, then stencil over it in the same colours, it was just a case of stamp, emboss and enjoy, I looked closer and thought those flowers should stand out more, so I took some water and went over the roses sponging up the excess water and the colour at the same time. I love that it hasn't taken all the water and some colour has been left on the card. I just need to add a sentiment when I need a card. I'm thrilled with it, especially using different ways (for me) to add and take away colour.

After I had finished the first card I had to do another and if dinner hadn't been due, I would have done more too, still there is plenty of time now.
This is so different from the first, I stamped and embossed onto plain watercolour card, then coloured the roses with Pixie Powder, the sheen is just gorgeous, added it to a gold mirror card layer, voila finished! It seemed a cheats way of making a card, it was so quick. Again, I'll add a sentiment when I know what I will use it for.
