I’ve had a bit of a play with my inkpads and my aquapainters this week….. I was so surprised how easy it was to get some really nice results.
I’ve just squished together the Stampin’ Pad lid and ink mat. This gives me a smudge of ink on the underside of the Stampin’ Pads lid, a palette in which I can dip the brush of the Aquapainter into. The Aquapainter is fantastic to work with as it’s basically a paint brush with the water inside it – so no mess and ready to go and a moments notice…. and very cheap at only $19.95 for a pack of 2!
So I’ve watercoloured the flower and sponged the boarder. It’s a simple card but with enough elements to keep in interesting.
