Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge April 2020

Well, Happy April Fools' Day! Seems like a prank gone really bad with all this COVID 19 stuff. I guess no one is going to say "April Fools" at a COVID 19 press conference, eh?

Hope you and your family is surviving this pandemic. For me, I have more time to craft, which is a good thing.

We have a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge.This month our challenge is

Here's my card

After a trip to France last summer, I became a fan of Van Gogh's art. I'm not sure if it was because he had such a difficult life or if I never really paused long enough to appreciate his art. However, I'm a fan. Perhaps, when I saw the "stars" prompt, I thought of his Starry Night painting. I looked through my stamp sets for something with stars and came across Lawn Fawn's Starry Backdrops. I used it with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder, which was heat set on a piece of 96 lb bristol. With a water brush, I added distress inks (chipped sapphire, seedless preserves, black soot). I moved the colours around with some water and the water brush until I got my own starry night. I trimmed the panel to 5.5" x 2.25" and adhered it to an A2 card. I stamped the sentiment, from the same stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

We'd love for you to join us.
