Aqua

I know I didn't join in the first Less is More Challenge cos I don't have any Aqua ink and I thought this time would be the same till I read someone using Stampin Up Pool Party, I have that.  It also means I could use this beautiful Kaiser stamp originally I brought with the idea to use it on a layout.
So used a versamark pad and white embossing powder in hindsight I could of just used clear powder. Then using a blending tool put the ink over the image.
The fun part was using the inkpad with a paintbrush and added more colour to the flowers and part the bicycle.
It such a shame that a camera doesn't pick up the bicycle that well I suppose really I should of stamped with black so it could be seen better but I have the one in RL and love how it turned out.
Its official I have moved out of my Craft Room the cold spell is going to continue into the weekend and I've had enough.

  3. This is terrific Debby, actually the first challenge wasn't aqua... merely a colour challenge, so this was a repeat of the theme rather than the actual colour.
    You have achieved a fab effect with this one!
    I think I need some Poll Party ink too!
    Thanks so much
