Over at Inky Paws challenge, the assignment this time is to "use a doily". I'm not really a doily-kind of person but I still wanted to play so....
I pulled out the closest thing to a doily that I have in my stash with turned out to be a stencil ("Lace") from Tim Holtz. I masked off a piece of Canson XL water color paper and ink blended Cracked pistachio and Mermaid lagoon on to it. Then I placed the stencil over and went back in with the same colors for a bit of a more interesting background.
I then chose to play with the cute stamp set Newton Unwinds. Here Newton has tangled himself up in balls of yarn. It's so cute. I had also just got some Bristol Smooth cardstock to test so I stamped on that and then colored with my Zig clean color real brush markers. Boy did they go on smooth. One has to use a bit of a different technique compared to the other water color papers I tried. Need to play more *smile*.
This is then the finished piece with the sentiment heat embossed in white on a black strip of card.
