Here is the card I have made for my brother who is a huge Lancashire Cricket fan!
I got these Nostalgia Stamps at a bargain price a little while ago, knowing they would come in handy for those 'difficult' Male cards!!!
I have tried this technique a few times....especially after watching the very talented Sheena demonstrate it on tv!! Maybe I used the wrong card before...who knows!! I used the watercolour 300gsm from Crafters Companion and stamped with my 'Gathered Twigs' DI and used a paintbrush and a little water to shade...I'm really pleased with how it has turned out.
I started out with one of the sketches from the PaperTake Challenge blog, designed by the very clever Dawny and it just sort of evolved!! I love her sketches, sometimes I stick to them and sometimes they just seem to go their own way! But they always give me the inspiration I need....
I just finished with my favourite corners and Card Candi.
Thanks for looking...
