Elegant GardenPosted: January 6, 2014
The latest Penny Black release features some elegant hearts and flowers in time for making Valentine cards. Visit the Penny Black blog for details of their latest challenge and chance to win stamps.
I had a scrap of watercolour paper covered with flecks of masking fluid. I dampened it then stamped the Corinthians verse as background. When the paper was a little drier I stamped the flowers inked with green and red. I used a paintbrush to add more ink to the leaves and petals. When it was dry I rubbed off the masking fluid and added the sentiment.
I recently changed my blog address; I am still with wordpress but the blog is self hosted now. If you are reading this you were probably redirected without any trouble but if you would like to update your reader or bookmark the new address is cards.heathertelford.com
Thanks for all the encouragement following my first watercolour tutorial. I am so glad you enjoyed it and appreciate the positive feedback.
