Hibiscus trestle Thinking of you card





Hello everyone and welcome to another CASE the designer challenge at Happy Little Stampers,




 and this time we are lucky enough to be able to CASE this fabulous card from the lovely Melissa






I was bowled over by the drama of the black and white with the soft watercolouring on the texture paste flowers, and couldn't wait to have a play with these ideas to come up with this one layer card:-



I took a panel of black card and a stencil called Hibiscus Trestle from Glitzcraft, and applied some Sweet Poppy Glossy White Paste. This was the first time I used this paste, and after it had dried, I was surprised to find that it dried mat rather than glossy for some reason! I then took my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and watercoloured the flowers leaving the trellis areas white.




The sentiment from Happy Little Stampers Thinking of You stamp set was stamped and embossed with white detail embossing powder, and I just added a few pearls to finish it off. Thanks for the inspiration Melissa - I love this technique and I'm sure I will be trying it again before too long.



and theWinner will receive one stamp set from HLS.

Why not click over to the HLS blog to see some inspiration from the rest of the team, and join in with us this month.

I'd like to play along with
