SummerSilhouettes

I have been meaning to do this card for a long time - it's cased from a swap
 that I received at Regional Training in May last year from Sally Bowman
 (who was inspired by Dawn Griffith)
So thanks to both of you - I have enjoyed getting inky fingers with this one!!


Colour combo is Pool Party, Marina Mist and Pacific Point.
I used Watercolour Paper with an aquapainter.
I wet the paper, then, using re-inkers, picked up ink with the aquapainter
and applied it in a scribbling fashion across the page with each colour.
When the ink /paper had dried, I over stamped with stamps from
the Summer Silhouette stamp set in Black.
Matted and layered onto Pacific Point, then White card stock
and finally onto a Basic Black card base.

Mmmm - must try this again with different colours and stamps!!
