Bubbletastic Spectrum Aquas

Good morning, happy Monday. I hope you all had a nice weekend & remembered to put your clocks forward an hour yesterday. I'd like to show you two cards today, both made with the
Floral set of Spectrum Aqua pens & the back in stock Blossom Bunch stamp from Stampendous.
(There are some other fab new Stampendous stamps available on the website, see them all HERE)
 For the first card I scribbled three colours onto the raised side of apiece of bubble wrap & spritzed the ink with water. Then I laid a piece of watercolour card on top & pressed down gently............
As well as my main piece & by spritzing with more water, I had enough ink left on the bubble wrap for two more pieces of watercolour card & a page in my mini art journal, for future use......
I stamped the Blossom Bunch stamp on top of the background with Onyx Black Versafine ink, covered it with clear embossing powder & heat set, then did the same on a piece of white card & cut out just the flowers, gluing the pieces to the main card.........
I added a tiny dot of colour to the centre of the flowers & the sentiment from the
Woodware Special Bird stamp to the bottom right & finished the card with matting & layering of similar colours of Core'dinations card..........
The second card was made by scribbling the Spectrum Aqua pens onto an acrylic block & spritzing with water, then laying watercolour card on top.
I stamped the Blossom Bunch stamp onto white card & cut out the entire image I added a bit of doodling with white & black pens & the sentiment is also from the Woodware Special Bird stamp set.......

    That's it from me for today, thanks for looking. Remember to check out the blog challenge & I am looking forward to seeing many of you at Friday's classes. If anyone else reading this is interested in attending, I think there are a few places left. Please contact Lisa at for information.
Until next time, happy crafting.
