Thank Whoo



I've been playing with the watercolour background Francoise Read from Woodware demonstrated on Saturday at my local craft centre.

 Hero Art's have a video showing the same background technique HERE if you would like to try it yourself.

My friend Tracy knows I love owls and this fab Papermania Urban Stamp was a present from her .

 For my first card I've used three distress ink colours to make the background and then used the same colours to colour my owl.

 Here's a bit closer view so you can see the sutle leaves I have stamp on the background as well.

 Francoise used finger daubers to add colour and so did I. It's strange how on the first card the colours bled out more and on the other two I ended up with dots of colour which I love as well as they remind me of smarties !!































Well you have to admit, 3 very different and very colourful " Thank whoo " cards !!

My friend Nicki came with me to the demo and she has some fab photo's of Francoise cards on her blog !!
