This is a case of a card by Shari Carrol which can be found here, its her video on how she made it using the layered watercolor stamping technique. I thought her elements went so well together and had to try it myself. I have invested in a design block Envelope pattern stamp and I think it will prove really effective.
This is another card using the same stamps but entirely differently. I used three different distress ink colors on a 10x15 sheet of acetate and misted with water for the background. (Actually, I found the acetate in the Cling packaging). Used Envelope pattern stamp over the background and then when dry, embossed the Leaf Cluster and Happy Birthday dictionary stamp over the top. Added some embellishment and gems.
These are the stamps I used
It is still raining here - my son can't go to school because of an 'Orange Alert' which means that his transport is not allowed to go on the roads due to flood alerts.
See you next week ;)
