Festive Fireplace Week | Technique Tuesday edition!

Stampin Up! Festive Fireplace Week

I have been playing around with this stamp set for a few weeks, and it makes lovely Christmas cards, but I knew I could stretch this one and make some cards for other occasions too!

Stampin' Up! UK Festive Fireplace Birthday Card

It is one of my brother in laws birthdays at the end of the month (am I damn near positive he is never going to see this post so I’m not worrying about sharing it early!) and decided this was the perfect opportunity to try something a little different with both the stamp set and my supplies!

I am completely in love with watercolour at the moment, and have some plans for some paintings soon (scary!) but I always use my ink pads to watercolour with and decided I would try something different with my Stampin’ Write Markers. I have to say, it didnt work as well as I had hoped. These markers are water based, and use the same ink as our ink pads, so I decided to try watercolouring with them direct to paper. I did get some movement of the ink, but not as much as I do when I apply the ink with a paint-brush so I think I’ll be sticking to that in future!

This card also features the wonderful Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum, which I cannot get enough of! and have used as part of this months Stampin@Home kit class, for more information on that click on the image below

Thanks for visiting my little blog today and I hope to see you again tomorrow for another card using the Festive Fireplace!
