Aqua flowers

20180609_163843

Hi there. I was being crafty again yesterday, and also getting inky fingers again.

I made this card inspired by the colours for the current Color Throwdown Challenge. The colours to use are black, white, and aqua. I love aqua – one of my favourite colours. I wanted to use my newly purchased Uniko stencil, so I turned to my pastes. I didn’t have any aqua paste, so I took the glossy white paste, and added some Cosmic Shimmer ‘shimmer paint – green aqua‘. I didn’t know how much to add, so I kept adding, and kept mixing…..in the end I made several cards, but this is my favourite. I’ll show the others at the bottom.

Here is a close-up: (ignore the blue-tac on the bird bath!!!)

I cut the dried pasted card using my Sue Wilson ‘Stitched square‘ dies, and added a sentiment from my go-to stamp set from MFT – heat embossed in white.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Color Throwdown – (black, white, aqua)

Seize The Birthday – birthday (not with the option of beachy)

Here are the other cards I made using another Uniko stencil: these I smudged a little 😦

I think my paste was too runny at this point.
