OCC Stretch your stamps 2 - Outline image stamps.

Hi to all!

My daughter and I went out of town for the weekend to visit my daughter's Godmother. We had a very wonderful weekend but a little time for crafting. I'm a little bit behind with the class and yesterday I tried to catch up for the previous four days homework. For the first card I was inspired by Debbie Hughes's card when she encouraged us to colour on non-white medium. I used to Neenah desert storm craft card stock for the base of my stamped image and coloured it with Derwent Colorsoft pencils. 

For the second card I wanted to try out Donna Mikasa's idea of water painting. I think I should have used more vibrant colour for the distress ink since I wasn't able to get enough contrast between inner and outer side of the stamped image. Though, in my crafting body's opinion this card was the best one for the day since it had enough pink! For the third card I just wanted to colour the magnolia with watercolour and make it a clean and simple card. I have not been using watercolours for a long time so this was quite challenging for me but I think it turned out nicely. I really like the look of watercolour!

Thank you for stopping by and thank you for the previous comments on my cards. I'm very pleased to see that someone else also likes my creations! Thank you! Happy crafting!
