Can you believe we're at Week 3 of the Pootler's Design Team for January? Where is the month going? So, as promised, for each Thursday in January, I'll be posting a project created using this little cutie...
Bella and Friends had been on my wish list since the launch of the current Stampin' Up! Annual catalogue (along with pretty much every other stamp set that hadn't yet made it into my ever growing collection - I'm such a stamp addict), and I'm delighted to share with you this week's Bella and Friends creation.
I have to admit, I've become slightly addicted to this watercolour technique. Who would have thought that a Classic Stampin' Pad could be so versatile? I know I didn't!
This week's project is created by stamping the image and greeting onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 3 5/8" x 5 3/8", using the Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad. Once dry (which takes very little time), I then used one of my Aqua Painters and my Classic Stampin' Pad's (in Chocolate Chip, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Pear Pizzazz, and Old Olive) to watercolour the image.
Once dry, using Snail Adhesive, I then mounted this image onto a piece of Island Indigo Cardstock, measuring 3 7/8" x 5 5/8". This was then mounted onto a C6 card blank I created from half a sheet of A4 Whisper White Thick Cardstock, again using Snail Adhesive.
This is such a simple card to make, but I think its very effective and gorgeous. I hope you do too!
