IHP Sketch challenge is Goin' Green
With this card I did faux watercolouring. I coloured the image (from Dandy Days by Our Craft Lounge) with markers and the gave it a little water spritz before I stamped it. *Uber* fab! I then sponged the image and gave it a spritz with Sparkle Shimmer spray. I used the emboss resist technique for the sketch correct card, sponged the edges and spritzed it too. I really like the subtlety of this spray because the shimmer is so fine and goes on very evenly.
The designer paper is from a new Cosmo Cricket line called, 'Garden Variety'. This whole pad is really super cute and has the terrific vintage feel that Cosmo Cricket is well-known for.
