WatermarkedPosted: July 6, 2010
This card came together by accident. I had stamped a small square image and embossed it so I could sponge in some colour after the embossing. Once I had done that I decided to mask an area on the card base to make a frame; that is the blue square you see on the card. When I positioned the square image on the blue sponged area it did not look any good so I just started experimenting, adding sponging all over the card. I added some artichoke sponging and some ink splatters and it began to look like I could make something out of it. I added the flowers and then did some spattering with water which disperses the ink creating little watermarks. The watermarks are my favourite part of the card. I added a sentiment and ended up quite happy with the card which was nothing like what I had imagined. If you click on the image you can see the watermark effect more clearly.
Thanks for dropping by, I am enjoying having time to stamp and browse other people’s blogs again.
