Oddball Bouquet


Hi There...

Yes... it's time for another Bellarific Friday! I swear these Fridays come round more often than weekly... but hey... I'm not complaining as I get to colour Stamping Bella goodies!!

Today we're highlighting the Stamp of the Month for September - which this time is Oddball Bouquet - you can buy her with 25% discount till the end of this month!

To create the background, I firstly blended the Distress Oxides onto Bristol Smooth watercolour card, then sprayed with water to lift some of the colour. I then sprayed with Pearl Ex mixed with water to give a shimmer (which is sooo difficult to capture on photos but looks fab in real life, then lastly with Distress Ink Picket Fence Paint.

I fussy cut the image so that I could make her stand out from the card on foam pads.
