Wow, What a month it has been, I cant believe my final post for the Pootler’s Design Team has come around already! I have had so much fun working with this stamp set, although this final card was kind of a last minute affair, I had heaps of fun making it!
If you’re a regular here at StampinByHannah, you will know how much I love to watercolour, and usually I make a giant mess, but not this time! One of our team mottos (yes, I think it has reached that stage now, anyone from the team reading this) is “Don’t Put It Down, Put It Away”, and the whole way through making this card all I could hear was Sam saying it! Each part of the card was watercoloured, the ink pad was put away, the aqua-painter was cleaned, and I started a fresh! What a difference, I made several projects this morning, and usually my Crafty Office would look like a bomb had gone off, but not today, it’s still nice and tidy!
Although I do love the Glamper coloured in Bermuda Bay and Delightful Dijon, I do think that the background of this card is my favourite bit. I had sort of overlooked the Fancy Frost Speciality Designer Series Paper, but I received a sample pack a couple of months ago at an event, and totally fell in love with it! At first glance its just white card stock, but on closer inspection it’s actually embossed with some really cool patterns. I have coloured it a shade of Bermuda Bay here using ink and an aqua-painter, it colours wonderfully, but I would say that you do need more water than you would on a flat cardstock to get a smooth watercolour wash effect.
I have a whole week of Glamper cards here on my blog this week, including a great card tomorrow for my Christmas Countdown video series, see you again tomorrow!
Question of the day: What is your favourite Christmas Craft? I love making home decor pieces, and crocheting Christmas presents, oh and making Gingerbread, and Christmas cards, and Scrapbooking the big day afterwards, oh who am I kidding, I love the whole lot!
