Hello Crafters ! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. We had fun with our family and of coarse gardening.
I'm posting a card that I created using stamps that are hand drawn designs by two different artists.
The Sea Bubbles Set, CM-S15 is from Designs by Ryn and the Waterlily is from the Crealies Company in the Netherlands, designed by Miranda of Miracle Art Inspirations . I think these two talented artists' designs look great together :)
I was lucky as my sweet 'baby' sister who lives in the Netherlands mailed a couple more of Miranda designed stamps over to me :) I also think I'm lucky to design for Design's by Ryn !
I created the background by blending Lettuce, Frosted Aqua & Pool Smooch Inks over Versamark ink on white smooth card stock. I then stamped Design by Ryn's - Sea Bubbles in several areas and embossed with gold.
I stamped the Crealies Waterlily on watercolour paper, embossed with gold and coloured with my Tombows using a brush & water. I gave the background of the waterlily a light wash of blue paint using the die as a stencil.
I used Spellbinders Nestabilities S4-114 to cut the circle. I drew an outline outside of the die on the aqua card stock to create the circle mat. I added sheer ribbon and layered onto co-ordinating card stock as shown. I also added some diamond stickles which is difficult to see in the photo.
My step mom is an avid photographer and takes beautiful photos of nature. Below is a photo that she took of a waterlily at the Naples Botanical Gardens this winter.
Thanks for your visit & have a great day !
