Get Well soon

Hello lovely blog followers.
Today I wanted to share with you as promised a card made using a fabulous technique shared at the Stampin Up Regional Training day in Telford. Lynne Fahey a fellow pinkie demonstrated this super easy but effective way of creating fabulous backgrounds for your stamped images and all you need are some Stampin up marker pens,  an acrylic block, a water spritzer and some whisper white cardstock.
I made this card for my Husband...on Tuesday he underwent an operation a very anxious time for us all...but I am pleased to say he should be home with us again tomorrow...cannot wait.

The background is very easy to do.....I picked four SU markers - Daffodil delight, Tangerine tango, Pumpkin pie and Real red and coloured an acrylic block  starting with the lightest colour at the top. When I had coloured the whole of the block I simply spritzed water over the entire block surface then stamped it onto the whisper white cardstock- keeping it presed down firmly until I could see the ink being absorbed into the card. Once dry you can stamp your image of choice onto it....I love this set "Just Believe" it has these wonderful silhouette stamps. I created mats from Real red and tangerine card, distressed the edges and added it to a card base created from Early espresso and the Woodgrain embossing folder. I also added some Natural trim,  a pewter slider and I couldn't resist adding a squirt of champagne mist and dazzling details to the flowers. The sentiment is beautiful and comes from set "Word Play"
If you would like to get your hands on any of the supplies used for this card please get in touch...and give this wonderful technique a try.
see you soon x
