Why not try Water Stamping

Evening Everyone
I hope that you have had some lovely sunshine where you are. It has been nice to see the sun although it has still been very cold here.
Today is the first Tuesday in the month so that means that it is the start of a new challenge over at Technique Time Tuesday.
 I love stamping and inks so it wasn't hard to play along with the challenge this month Water Stamping.
I have used a couple of Hero Arts stamps and my trusted Distress Ink pads.
I love these solid style images and have stamped and embossed using Versamark and clear embossing powder over the top of the text background which has been stamped in black onto white card stock.
The strip across the centre is an EK Success punch and I also added some Card Candi.
I would also like to enter this into the following challenges
Creative Corner Challenges - Anything Goes
A Little Bit Crafty - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes
Let's hope that the sun is a little warmer tomorrow, I really am getting very bored now.
Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Oh my word..this is beautiful. The flow of the colors put you in a trance and as they trail off the main image, they almost look to turn into a mist!! Gorgeous creation and thank you so much for sharing it. :)

  9. That purple is perfect for water stamping , I think I might try it again with such a striking colour. Absolutely love your card, how you used the same image so you get a negative effect. Thank you for joining in with our challenge at Technique Time Tuesday - we're so glad you did!
