I think “Because I Care” would have to be one of the most beautiful stamps available in the current Stampin’ Up! catalogue (Level 1 Hostess Set),and I have used it often, it seems to be one I keep coming back to. This set of cards is one I made for another challenge, this time from Our Creative Corner, who want to see a card which shows off my particular style of cardmaking. Hmmmmmm well, I love colouring – watercolouring, pastels, pencils….. I love patterned paper and ribbon, sponging and paper piercing or stitching. I guess what I am saying is that is was hard to narrow that down, and I love trying out new things. Then after I had made one card, I couldn’t stop, and ended up making a set of three cards.
Again I went with watercolouring the main images in each card using inks and aquabrush – I think this is probably my favourite way of doing watercolouring. I have used the fabulous Newsprint Designer Series Paper, which I adore, and which you are going to see over and over again….. And, I have used the Distressing Essentials Kit, to create that old fashioned, worn look, which I think works really well on these cards.
