City of Hope

Hi everyone,

This week, it's finally going to be Spring! Here in the Netherlands, the weather isn't quite there yet to match it. I hope it happens soon, because I'm so done with Winter and so ready for Spring. Simon Says Stamp and Show came up with another great challenge for us. And that is water. Water? Yes water. The sky is the limit. Go nuts, think watercolor ink, or a nice stamp with a water theme, or maybe a cool water technique.



I used watercolor paper for this challenge. It's pure magic to see how the Dylusion Sprays so beautiful blend together. I don't use watercolor paper often and each time I'm amazed how cool it is to work with.






Working with stencils is so much fun and this time I chose the Bubbles stencil. And sprayed it 2 colors of Dylusion Sprays. My love for stencils continues on this card with the mini chevrons, mini chevron arrows and mini punchinella, that I used with Distress Ink. Then I added some layers with stamps.




To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra

  14. This is gorgeous! I love all the different elements you've put together here. Is that a brown paper bag peeking out on the right hand side? Whatever it is, it looks fantastic!
