spotlight at crafty cardmakers water

hiya our Spotlight today at crafty cardmakers has been chosen by one of our newbies Donna and that is WATER. To qualify you must use "Water or Something you add water to or water has been added" so for example spritzers, glimmer mists, H2o's, watercolours that kinda thing. You can use any images or stamps etc you like but you ust use a water product or technique.

We're very kindly sponsored by The Handy Hippo who are offering a £10 voucher for their online store!
Handy Hippo is a friendly online craft supplies shop with a great range of rubber stamps and other card making goodies. They specialise in card making, but also stock plenty of great quality supplies for scrapbooking, jewellery making and children's crafts. Their website has lots of information on crafting techniques, plus a great selection of free card project ideas to suit crafters of all abilities.
Thank You Handy Hippo!

here is my offering just the week before the spotlight was decided i had some new inktense pencils so just had to have a play. so i water coloured my stamp and spritz my background using a diecut as a mask to give the white corner decor the pink velvet flowers up the side are out of my stash think they were from qvc but don't know the make hope you like it go and have a go at the spotlight challenge it's lots of fun and a way of learning new techniques
