ABNH - One Layer Challenge



A quick one-layer card today for A Blog Named HeroColour Throwdown  and Simon Wednesday challenges.

The background is stamped with distress inks, spritz with water on acrylic block and stamped onto a watercolour paper.  The leftover of the inks are diluted with more water to create the splatters on the background.

Then, I used the old stamp from HA Wild Garden stamped and heat embossed and did a second generation stamping too.

It's King's Day today and it's also my DH's birthday.  As you may know, the colour orange is the national colour in The Netherlands.  Majority tend to wear orange today and this is the only legal day that children can set-up flea markets everywhere.

I tried to talk my children to take a family picture in "orange" but they are not into it so we ended up with just the both of us!


Thanks for dropping by and have a good day!
