Aquamarkers and Stamping

Hi everyone, hope you are all well and that those of you in the UK enjoyed the bank holiday weekend.

I've recently been treating myself to some new Penny Black goodies and this stamp is called 'the unfolding'. I have seen how people ink their stamps with Distress inks and then spritz with water but as I don't own any of said inks I decided to try it out with my Aquamarkers. I was quite pleased with the result and just added a few extra touches with the paintbrush before attaching to the card base. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and the fabric butterfly which glistens and shines different colours is from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Happy Little Stampers CASE challenge - this is the card I CASEd

Passion For Promarkers challenge 'nature'

Penny Black and More challenge 'anything goes'

Stamping Sensations challenge 'anything goes'

Noor Design UK challenge 'spring flowers'

Your card is just beautiful Andrea and the inking with the deeper pink at the tips is perfect. I think the last release of PB stamps had some of the best florals for years, although I don't have this particular one - yet.

As always it lovely to see you at Penny Black and More and Stamping Sensations, many thanks for joining in.
