With Love.........

Today's project is decorating an envelope.......
My colour choice was inspired by Color Throwdown
I thought they where really pretty colours.

I used Concord & 9th Wildflower Stamp Set 
and New to me their Perfectly Penned Stamp set.
I was keen to see if I could link the alphabet together.
It went OK!

I will be entering the challenge.....
I stamped the flowers with white pigment ink
and painted the colours with watered down acrylic paints.
The flower stamp set is so pretty and I enjoyed using the new alphabet set.
The card to go in it is nearly finished!

I will be linking my card up to the following Challenges......
New Alphabet stamp set, stamping and colouring onto kraft with acrylics all new to me

  10. You did a great job with the alphabet set, it definitely looks hand drawn. The lightly painted flowers are really nice! I want to try that technique with the watered down paint!
