A bit of an experiment indeed! Let me explain. First of all if you are a regular reader you will know that I love to join in at Less is More and this week's challenge is use a Rubber Stamp with a desert option of water colouring.
Using the rubber stamp is no problem but my experimentation came in with the water colouring. Which stamp set to use? Well if we are getting wet then Wetlands seemed appropriate.
I took the image of the goose (is it a goose? I'm not sure!) and coloured it with my Stampin' Write Markers then spritzed the stamp with water before stamping onto Whisper White. I then spritzed the paper too letting the colours run. I coloured the stamp again with the markers and over stamped the image. I coloured the separate grasses stamp again with a marker and stamped around the bottom edges. To give my bird some definition I used the nib end of my marker and went around it's outline. I then cut some notches into the edges to distress it a little and attached it to a card stock mat. It's attached to a Whisper White card base. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, aren't the fonts fab?
My daughter is off on her Primary 7 trip today. She was so excited about going as she has been looking forward to it for so long and can remember seeing her big brother off. Each year the Primary 7's set off for Loch Insh in the Highlands and I think the younger ones always look forward to when it'll be their turn. A week of water sports, Archery, Skiing (dry slope), mountain biking etc. No wonder they are excited! For me it was another milestone, my little girl is now a big girl and this is her turn!
Bye for now from a sappy Mum! x
