I have to admit that I totally CASE'd one of my favorite artists' cards, the amazing Miss Anna Wight! I love her simple yet stunning cards. She wow's me everytime!
I wanted a simple masculine style of card for my FIL who turns 80 this month! I hope he likes it!!
I watercolored the image using Twinkling H20's, and sponged Vintage Photo Distress Ink along the edges for a cool effect.
I made the bg paper myself and I love how it turned out! I used canvas paper and just swiped it with various dye ink pads. When the ink was dry, I used a bottle top to "stamp" circles all over it with an off-white colored acrylic paint. In other words, I just had fun! No rhyme or reason. Just random color and random dots. Sometimes I gotta let the inner child out to play!!
You can find this High Hopes Stamp at Bunny Zoe's Crafts in England, Scrappin' Great Deals in Canada, among other stores that carry HH's (check out the list on the right side bar).
Thanks for looking today!
