New to me
The challenge on Delicious doodles challenge is "fresh start", use something new to you. Well I have used some watercolour paper to create the main image on this card. I had never brayed onto watercolour paper before and was interested to see what the result would be. I had bought a pad from a cheap bookshop and didn't realise it was as flimsy as it turned out to be, but nice and lightweight to sit on the card. I am fairly pleased with the background, not too sure about the rest of it! My first attempt at this type of scene without a tutor present though. Something else new for me was drawing around a nestie to create the frame. I then brayed over the card lightly and added some Debbi Moore silhouette stamps in the foreground. I've not put a sentiment on as most of my cards are given to sell for charity and I read that a lot of people would like cards without sentiments.
I'd also like to enter this card into the Stamp Something challenge, which this week is for "anything" as it is there last every challenge. There seems to be a few challenges ending - however new ones are springing up too!
