Deep in Thought

Hi All,

It is time for another Inspiration Post over at STAMPlorations. For today's card I tried my hand at watercolouring using ink from marker pens. I was working with The Bee's Knees Smallbirds and added a sentiment from VIGNETTE Trendy Feathers.

I thought it might be fun to give the bird a sort of shadowy, hazy type of feel hence I white embossed the Kingfisher on watercolour paper and, taking a leaf out of Shirley's book, sloshed some colour around. To finish I stamped my sentiment, distressed and inked the edges and mounted it at a slight angle on matching card.
This is an easy card to make, perfect for those moments when you just need one 'now'.
Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog for more inspiration from my teamies. This is also where you can play along with us in the Inspiration CASE Playground simply by CASEing one of our cards and link up, each month a winner will be drawn at random. There is still time to link up for April!!!

I am linking my card to the following challenges:

That's is from me for today, back soon with more inspiration.
Enjoy your day! hugs
