Thank you for your comments on my bag! I do love making these stamped bags and am thinking about creating a few for my next craft fair, which isn't until the autumn so no hurry :)
Yesterday, my mid-week day off was very busy, I didn't even get the time to share my desk on WOYWW...I was 'playing' with some Indigo Blu stamps, as we are going to be showing our group how to use gilding flakes in tonight's workshop - plus - I am going to be doing a demo day in Amy's shop using the flakes sometime soon.
When I was making the cards, I decided to make my Sunday Stampers project for this week. Hels has given us the topic of Paints ..this card isn't the one I had in my head, for which I was going to use the distress paints I got at Ally Pally, instead I used the watercolours I got at the Tate Modern...a really cute little tiered pot, which you unscrew to reveal 24 gorgeous colours!
I started off with an A5 sheet of watercolour card, folded in half to make the 'blank, which I tore at the sides. The stamp I used is Indigo Blu's 'Anemone Corner' - except I really wanted red, so I disguised them as poppies!!!
I stamped them on to the card and then again on to a second sheet of watercolour. Using my paints, I coloured the whole of the first image and just the flowers in the second, which I then cut out. Next I followed an Ali Reeve idea and tied some string around a block of wood, which I inked with Fired Brick and randomly stamped a background. I did the same on the square panel and used a Sam Poole stamp for the sentiment. The edges of the card and panel were all inked with Fired Brick.
I added the cut our flowers to give a little depth and also a die cut butterfly and some ribbon to finish off.
Thanks for stopping by!
