Too Heavy Handed With The Squidgee Thing

Afternoon all, here I am again (you can tell I've had withdrawal symptoms can't you) with my second post of the day.  My earlier post of Animal Antics is here.

So I am back with my LESS IS MORE card for this week and their colour challenge of AQUA.  Now, a friend and I always debate this one - I tend to see more blue, and she sees more green.  


I really struggled to get a crisp photo of this one - I think the poor light and a lot of white on the card totally confused my phone camera.  This has been the best I've managed.

Using a Hero Arts flower stamp and VersaMark, I created a watermark image, and then with the sponge squidgee thing I inked over with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  I think I was too heavy handed as the resist isn't as clean as it could be - next time I think I'll try it with clear or white embossing powder.  On the card base, I sponge inked a faint band in the same colour and over stamped with a tiny stamp.  Layering the panel over that, I then added the butterfly (a magazine freebie) and the sentiment.

Hugs, Sxx

I like your faux ribbon strip Squirrel... this looks great, I haven't actually tried the resist technique without embossing... I must give it a go!
Super job!
Thanks so much

Fab resisting Squirrel, love the image. Try just dabbing over the image with a very slightly damp, very slightly if you know what I mean, paper towel ... it should just lift off the DI.
Love your card.
Hugs

I love the effect of just inking over the versamark Squirrel - it's given a lovely soft image a bit like chalking. Vicky x

Lovely card Squirrel, that panel looks FAB
I tend to see aqua as more green, I think having green eyes does that? who knows!
Thank you very much

Aqua is one of those colors that make me squirrelly. Next thing you know people are telling you that you've got teal or turquoise or... pffft! I love that faux ribbon in the back. You had me fooled!
