Hi there, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. It was sunny yesterday and despite it being February our sunlounge was warm enough to eat lunch in and I managed to get washing out on the line too!
I did have time for some crafting too and here's something I created for our new challenge today at Make My Monday. This week Suzi has challenged us to make something with our Two Favourite Colours which I found a little difficult as I try create with as many colours as I can so in the end I picked my favourite 2 shades of Distress inks for inspiration - Crushed Olive and Victorian Velvet, otherwise known as Pink and Green!
I've also used some of my favourite stamps here too.
I made the background paper by painting watercolour paper with dusky rose and olive green acylic paints which I watered down to make a wash. I then stamped on the Stampendous Love Paris image with Archival Olive ink. I then stamped on Hero Arts Old French Writing with VersaMagic Pink Grapefruit ink.
I stamped the Rubber Stampede Tip Your Hat (she looks so French!) image with the olive ink on smooth cartridge paper. I painted the image and also the flowers on the Eiffel Tower image with Aquamarkers in shades of pink and green.
I then stamped the Kaisercraft butterfly on a scrap of pink painted watercolour paper with the olive ink and cut this out.
I assembled the card as you see, adding some pale pink lace trim and a green flower and leaves to embellish.
Have a great day and a good week.
