At the moment I’m in love with all things “water-coloury”! I have lots of different mediums (Kuretake Gansai thingies, Spectrum Noir Aqua markers, the new Zig Clean Colour markers) and of course one of my favourites, Distress pads and markers. As we’re featuring Ranger products this week I decided to play with my Distress markers and indulge in a bit of water-colour therapy! I stamped the gorgeous magnolias from Altenew in Versamark ink and embossed them in Ranger gold embossing powder. I then used a combination of Distress markers (scribbled on to a sheet) in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry. I flooded the area inside the embossing with water and then just let the ink do it’s workby picking it up with a paintbrush and dropping the colour in. Once I let it air dry I stamped the greeting from the brand new Big Scripty Greetings set from the Simon Says Stamp Color of Fun Release in Versamark and again, embossed it in gold. I mounted the panel onto the front of an A2 card leaving no edge – a nice, clean and simple card to send someone a much needed hug.
Sadly, this card is for a friend of mine who has just lost her husband – an amazing man who was suddenly taken from us last Sunday. You may remember I made a card for them when they celebrated their “joint 40th” birthdays a few months ago (HERE). Danny was just 40 and was taking part in a Triathlon in North Wales when he collapsed and tragically passed away. He was a great guy and you can read about his story here – and if you feel like you want to help Nicki continue to raise money for his beloved charities then that would be awesome too. The links are HERE and HERE.
So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
