Playing with H20s

I wanted to play with my Sheena Douglas stamps again today, and also to use my much neglected H2Os.

I had already made the flowers using the Pebeo Fantasy paints when playing last week, so these were the basis of the colours I wanted to use.

The background was a wash of H2Os and mica powders.  I tried many variations, before I decided to use this background.  (some were done on watercolour card, , and some had the swirl painted with H2Os, during the process of deciding the effect I wanted!)  This one was actually done on normal 160g white card.

I then stamped the swirly spray from Sheena's Flower Power set, and coloured it with Promarkers; then added glossy accents to give it dimension and added the enamelled flowers.

I created the 70 and the sentiment in CAP2 , creating an embossed effect on the 70, which was cut out and then glazed with glossy accents again.  

For the sentiment I used one of the CAP special effects   to which some background colour was added using an Ink Duster brush, and Big & Juicy "Spice" inkpad.  This was then edged with a black  Promarker and glossy accents added to the letters.

Again this has been a bit of a deviation from my normal card - but I had a lot of messy fun achieving it!

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you like the card.
