Blackberries

Hello friends.  Welcome.


I've inked this stamp with Distress Markers, inking a section at a time.

The MISTI is wonderful for this technique!

I had bought some linen cardstock and wondered if I could
watercolor on it.  It worked great!

The design piece has been die cut and inlaid back into the frame.

Serendipity is having a Blog Hop.

Enjoy!

These blackberries look scrumptious. Gorgeous MISTI watercolouring technique. Good to know watercolouring on linen cardstock works. Great way to add texture subtilely. x

What a beautiful job you did watercoloring this with distress markers. Love the soft wash in the background as well as the inlaid main panel.
Love this image too, Bonnie and missed it last month when I won their blog hop.

This pretty Serendipity image done by inking the stamp has that soft watercolour look which suits it beautifully Bonnie and the double stitched inset frame make this a very elegant card. x
