AAA cards : Challenge #10

Hi there!

I can't believe it's our 10th challenge this week at AAA cards!

We had so much fun last week with the Mac Gyver challenge and blog hop! Be sure to check out the winners post .

The winner of the comments on my post is Katherine K (#31 out of 42 comments).

Katherine please e - mail me your postal address, I will forward it to Victoria, and she will get your prize in the mail!

On to this week's challenge!

I played with watercolor and an embossing folder to create my banner... so much fun!

Just paint the one side of you embossing folder with a small amount of paint, then spray with a little bit of water and your embossing folder becomes a background stamp!

And I have another sentiment to share:

Thanks so much for visiting me today... hope to see you this week at AAA cards!

WOW! This is gorgeous. How clever to make your embossing folder into a background stamp!
Another fabulous sentiment too - thank you.

Oooo, fantasmagories, vrou!!!!! Die kleure is so fantasties en ek hou daarvan dat die verf op die EF nie soliede lyne gemaak het nie en dat daar nog wit deurkom op plekke. (hoop jy verstaan wat ek bedoel!!!!) Die klein rhinestones lyk pragtig en natuurlik is daai blom net eenvoudig te lieflik vir woorde!!! Ek bly aanmekaar teruggaan om net weer te kyk en te waardeer!! Hou van die groot kern van die blom en die sentiment is pragtig!! Dit is regtig baie mooi, vrou!!! Mal daaroor!!

NS Ek het vir my ook waterverf aangeskaf, maar sommer die goedkoop soort wat die kinders mee verf. Wou nie aanvanklik te veel spandeer en dalk kom ek nie reg daarmee nie. Sal kyk hoe dit gaan en later dalk ordentlike verf koop. Ek gaan kyk om hierdie week weer by AAA te speel!!

Love this technique, have done it with ink before but never thought to wet it for a watercolour effect. Great sentiment again1

Pragtige kaartjie Hannelie! Daardie banier lyk soos kant.

Lynn said...

Oh I love that bloom...fabulous dimension Hannalie.

Angela said...

I can't believe how easy this great technique sounds for such a fabulous result!

Victoria Lavender said...

Wow did you get a great impression! The paint stayed so well in the crevasses I didn't think it was done by folder. It's stunning and fun and a card that has you wondering "How did she do that" is always the best ones. Thanks Hannelie your cards are always well done and interesting. Hugs

Vicki Dutcher said...

Beautiful bg -- thanks for the sentiment. You are so sweet about sharing :)

Gerrina said...

The BG is beautiful! I use to make them with Distressink; have to try with paint also; looks so great! Thanks for the sentiment; het is een mooie en goed te gebruiken! Groetjes, Gerrina

Anita in France said...

That bloom is just awesome, Hannelie ... so much lovely layering and texture! I love that the gorgeous background echoes it's shape! Hugs, Anita :)

Kim Heggins said...

Wow...what a gorgeous card! I love your fabulous design and those colors, so pretty.

Geri said...

Something is amiss again with missed e-mails = missed posts! I seem to be receiving doubles of some of the girl's posts and none at all of others! Grrrrr!

I'm glad that I scrolled down a bit otherwise this pretty would have been missed! Love this cool technique! I'm thinking that this is a great way to actually put some of my ef's to use!

Gorgeous colors - love the banner look and the pretty flower! Thanks for another great sentiment too :)

Thanks Hannelie! I emailed Victoria my address! I appreciate your almost daily inspiration.

Warm Hugs,
Katherine xx

Gorgeous results with your embossing folder, Hannelie! I love the soft pastels and stunning flower, and your sentiment is so lovely! Thank you so much for sharing it with us, too!

Patti said...

What a clever idea and so beautiful!! thank you for the tip : )


Lucianna Dilsaver said...

Love your pattern with that fun flower, so pretty :)

Pat said...

I must try that background technique. Also accept your kind sharing of this 'special' sentiment. I have a stamp that has the expression but it's in a rather chunky style...I prefer this one. Thanks so much.
