Beautiful Meadows!

Hello and a very happy, sunny Monday morning to you! :-)

Today I'd like to show you my latest make with another favourite Unity stamp kit....'Insightful Meadows' available in the UK from the lovely Emily here
I know the technique on my card isn't a new one........but it's one I've not done before and I really enjoyed making it, and it's super easy :-)  so I thought I'd share it with you....
I started with a piece of Watercolour card.... (it did start off as a square, but I can never cut straight!!) after trying various inks on some scraps, I stamped the sentiment in Brown Staz-On. I wanted to do this first so I knew more or less where the flowers would go. I used Distress Inks to stamp with and sprayed the stamp after inking to get a nice 'water colour' effect after stamping... I love how it goes all 'splodgy'!! You never know what it's going to look like because every stamped impression will be different... I just matted it onto 2 co-ordinating matts and added some ribbon....I have reverted back to 'my' colour as you can see!!!!

Thanks for looking, I hope you have a lovely Bank Holiday Monday and I'll see you very soon.

She xx
