A Painted Card

I bought this Woodware cling stamp on Saturday at the Craft Barn. They had some gorgeous samples using it and at £3.99 I decide it was a worthy addition to my floral stamp collection. I'm trying to give an airing to neglected items in my craft hoard that are languishing in the inner recesses of drawers etc so I pulled out my Twinkling H2Os (remember those?). I had such fun using them and the colours are so vibrant with a glorious sheen. The scan shows up as sky blue but it's got more of a greenish tinge to it and the pearlescent paper (from an ancient Craftwork Cards punching pad) matches perfectly. I highlighted the dots with Ranger enamel accents and went over the squiggly lines with a pen. I didn't immediately think of using a Kraft card blank for this but it's quite a dark Kraft and seemed to fit better than the other base cards I tried. So something new and several old items used. I'm keeping the H2Os out on my desk for a while longer ...


  1. Must find my twinkling H2O's and give them an airing, as your card looks great !!

  2. My twinkling H2Os are languishing in a large container at the bottom of the spare wardrobe - the one that holds all the rest of stuff I don't quite know what to do with!!
    Love the flower and how you have painted it. It is gorgeous, can just imagine the shimmer.

  3. That is one funky flower! its fabulous coloured with the H20s and looks fab on the Kraft card! xxx


I read and value all your comments.
