Playing with Watercolour Inks!

What a beautiful day here in Nova Scotia. The sun is shining, the birds are singing,
and I've been able to play in my Happy Room all day long.

Mmmm-mmmm, life is GOOD.

Last night I created stacks of marbled papers using Ecoline Watercolour Inks from Quietfire Design,
using the shaving cream technique. I really love the subtle "movement" these inks create
when paired with a stamped image! Here are several cards I created today with
some of the backgrounds. All the sentiment stamps are done from Suzanne Cannon's
fine hand calligraphy, and are also available at her fun shop,
Quietfire, in British Columbia, Canada.

These cards are also for the Created by Hand challenge for May 6th., which is
to use charms on your cards. I used Swarovski crystals and pearls,
hope they count as charms!

The image stamps used on these two cards are from Lazar Studio Werx, which is
coincidentally also located in British Columbia, Canada. (Those west-coasters are an artsy lot!)





The fairy card uses a stamp from All Night Media, and the Iron Gate stamp is from Lazar Studio Werx.

I am SO enjoying these inks! They come in the most beautiful colours, and seem to last forever!

Once again, thanks so much for visiting today. I hope you have time to leave a comment
to say you were here! :)
