Take It Make It Challenge

I have just learned two new techniques last week and I am going to combine these two together.  I absolutely love how my card turned out today.  The first technique is from Tim Holtz and second technique is from Craft Stamper.  I am also entering this card into Simon Monday Challenge.

Technique #1 : First, colour your stencil in your colour choice.   I used stars stencil but when it came out you could barely see the stars.  (Bare with me for a few more seconds and you will be able to see the result).

 Put a piece of watercolour cardstock over the stencil and spray water over the cardstock.

Technique #2 : Take a piece of wet tissue paper; in this case I used this wet tissue to clean my stamps. Scrunch it into whatever shape you want it to be on your paper, I just make it into a tiny circle as I wanted the end result to come out as a circle.  Dap the wet tissue onto the cardstock for about 10 seconds.  Then remove it and clean or take the cleaner part of the tissue to dap it again on a different spot. Repeat this procedure until you are happy with the result.

Can you see the white spots?  This is the result from the dabbing!

Now you are ready to decorate your cardstock. I stamped the PB Flower Amongst Flower partially and the sentiment is from Craft Companion.  Very very happy with the end result.



I hope you will have sometime to give it a try.  Thanks for dropping by!
