Revisiting an idea

I made a couple of cards similar to these ones for A Blog Named Hero last week (see THIS POST), but I wanted to try with a different background stamp, and a different colour.
I used the Garden Tile Pattern background stamp from Hero Arts, white embossed onto watercolour paper (I didn't really need the watercolour paper, but I had originally planned to add watercolour paints, but then changed my mind!), along with Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks. The first sentiment is from Stamp-It, the second is "A very special birthday" from Hero Arts.



 Thanks for visiting :)

  1. Michelle, both of these cards are totally perfect. Love your colour combo and this background stamp, I so need it. i am trying to work out if you used the distress inks as watercolour or blended. Whichever it is brilliant.

    1. Hi, Aileen - thanks for your comment! I used an ink blending tool with Distress Inks - Salty Ocean, then Mermaid Lagoon, then Peacock Feathers, then Cracked Pistachio.
