Watercolour Harbour Part One


I absolutely love these stamps – I have used them many times before.

But I thought I would try something a bit different.


I used watercolour paints directly on the stamp and I dampened my card with water ready to create a nice blend.


I then stamped the image onto acetate to restore the definition.


I  love the way the water makes the paints run.

I hope you like it.

Twinchies – 3 techniques in 3 colours and 1 stamp


I have some more Twinchies today, which is always a nice way to start a week.


I really had fun with these, all using the same Butterfly stamp in 3 colourways.

The first trio is simply stamped and coloured in using pencils.  Then using embossing folders I have inked in a corresponding colour to accent the embossing and then flattened again to bring the stamping back as the focal image.


The others are stamped using watercolours; one onto dry and one onto wet.  Great effects and fun to do. I then overstamped in black ink once dry.


I love these and I hope you do too.

See you again with something else.
