For the first challenge with out new sponsor, as it is a 'Special Day', I'm sharing a wall plaque I made using the Regal Peacock stamps ...
I began by randomly stamping my design on a piece of white card using Archival ink ...
Next, using my Aquaflow pens, I added lots of colour to create my background. The colours have been loosely blended as I didn't want soft edges.
Using one of the petal stamps, I stamped, watercoloured and cut the designs out. These, believe it or not will become my toadstool bases ...!
Next using the Toadstool Border die, I cut the design out in white, black and cream card.
Now to make the toadstools and again I have chosen one of the petal stamps, stamping and watercolouring before cutting them out.
The real fun part now begins for me as I can start adding all the different elements (or the faff stage as my hubby calls it), to bring my design together. Starting with that yummy Toadstool die ...
To tie all the colours together I'm using ribbons & trims. This also adds extra texture to my design and yep ... I used all the items shown. Trust me, it'll look fab once completed ...
Next out came the white pen to add highlights and extra interest to my designs before adding my sentiment - from the Regal Peacock stamp set - which I decided to cut up.
A few hearts were added by using the butterfly wings stamp and watercolouring them, plus a sprinkling of diamonds too.
