Welcome to my second guest designer post at Annabelle Stamps. This weeks challenge at Annabelle Stamps is to Say it in Orange and Purple….
I made a card and matching corner bookmarker. I used the All Things Grow set – if you can only get one Annabelle stamp set make it this one! I made a card in purple card stock and matted some orange card stock – that just happened to be the exact shade of the Annabelle twisted paper cord! My neutral is a panel of white watercolour paper. I stamped on the watercolour paper using what I believe is called the ‘walking technique’.
For this I stamped 4 different colour distress inks onto my craft mat. I used the grass stamp and pressed it into the ink randomly onto all the colours. I then spritzed the inked stamp lightly with water and stamp it onto the watercolour paper. It gives a lovely water coloured effect. I did the butterflies the same way. Of course the butterflies needed some bling. This came in the form of the Annabelle sprinkles in Pumpkin. Here is a close up so you can see the effect this particular method gives..
