Multicoloured Stamping

Hello!

I hope you are well? Thank you for all your recent well wishes and kind comments. Reading them make me feel better already :) 
I wish I could say that I have recovered from my surgery, but I couldn't be further from it. I am still in a lot of pain, have difficulty eating unless I take the strong pain killers that make me sleepy, very, very slow and totally useless. My throat is still covered in the yucky stuff and it is now 6/7th day after the operation... I had a really bad day yesterday. I collapsed on the bathroom floor followed by throwing up bloody water. I's been awful. I just have to battle through it so please bear with me... 

I did manage to make one card inspired by the Craft Stamper Magazine and their current 'Take It, Make It' challenge 'Multicoloured Stamping'.


I started by mixing some light blue/turquoise mica powder with water, applied it loosely over my watercolour paper and covered it with a cling film to create a pattern. This created a pretty shiny but delicately patterned background. It was hard to capture it with my camera. Once dry I used my Big Brush pens by Faber-Castell to colour my Hydrangea flower stamp by Hero Arts and stamped with it onto my dry background. I cut it to a slightly smaller size than my white base so that I could adhere my pretty lace all around the front panel. I added my sentiment using Stazon and some pearls to finish the card off. I hope you like my classical vintage card! I'm sure my Grandma would approve ;)
