With Anzac Day being this week, Just Add Ink has decided to focus on Mateship or Friendship.
I decided to use the Nicest Things stamp set to create this card for a friend.
My idea was to make the card look like an old-time scrapbook page or perhaps a bulletin board. I watercoloured the girls, trying to make it look like a photo and left the bunny as a sketch would be. I used dsp from the hostess paper pack, it is blushing bride. I sponged crumb cake ink on it to age it a little though because it was too white.
I sponged the clouds using baja and a mask made with a scallop circle and scallop oval punch. It was the first time I’ve tried this technique and I was really happy with how it turned out. I think my watercolouring may be full of cloudy skies in the future!
Stamps : The nicest things
Card : espresso, watercolour paper, confetti white, hostess paper pack
Ink : baja, espresso, stazon, crumb cake
Other : crayons, aquapainter, sponge, scallop circle punch, scallop oval punch, linen thread, pip button, photo corner punch, library clip, spiral border punch
Why not send a card to a friend this week “just because”. Not for any special occasion, but just to say Hi.
April 25th – Anzac Day
ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. In 1917, the word ANZAC meant someone who fought at Gallipoli and later it came to mean any Australian or New Zealander who fought or served in the First World War. During the Second World War, ANZAC Day became a day on which the lives of all Australians lost in war time were remembered. The spirit of ANZAC recognises the qualities of courage, mateship and sacrifice which were demonstrated at the Gallipoli landing.
