EH Pinsights - Lovely Thistle
My neighbour, Mrs. Wilson, asked me to make a birthday card for her sister-in-law, who is an artist. I decided to use a faux-watercoloring technique using Distress Inks and these Essentials by Ellen stamp sets. I was inspired by the colours in the current Pin-Sights Challenge:
I placed each stamp on my stamp positioner, inked it with Distress Ink and then spritzed it with my Nuvo Mist Spray Bottle. I love how each one turns out unique, giving it an artistic feel.
My first attempt ended up being the card on the left, which I will keep. Mrs. Wilson is 88 and prefers a less CAS style to my typical designs. For her card, I added more flowers and embossed the sentiment in gold. She is not afraid to tell me when I need to do something different on a card she has requested - I will report back once I've delivered it to her! lol!
