Olá! Bom Sábado!

Gostaria de começar por dizer que me sinto muito feliz por ter sido convidada para membro da equipa de design no novo projeto do blogue Creative With Stamps


Vai começar a 1 de Abril, é um desafio para quem gosta de fazer postais e usa habitualmente carimbos. Este desafio vai decorrer todos os meses e haverá prémios para os melhores trabalhos. Darei mais pormenores nos próximos posts deste blogue.

Hoje trago um postal de aniversário feito sobre a base do postal (técnica One Layer). 
Comecei por fazer uma base de tamanho A6 (standard). Depois usei lápis de cera de aguarela em dois tons de verde e usei água e um pincel para misturar as cores. Tentei que o resultado final tivesse um efeito gradativo. 
Em seguida estampei o sentimento e a flor. Para esta, usei lápis para dar alguma cor, mas sem a tornar o foco principal. Neste caso o sentimento é o mais importante, uma vez que esta semana, em Less Is More, esse deve ser o elemento principal. Usei carimbos da Docerela.
Para além deste desafio, inspirei-me em outros que poderão ver no final deste post.






Hi! Happy Saturday!

Let me start by saying that I feel very honoured to have been invited for a new challenge blog project (Creative With Stamps) starting next month. 


It's a monthyly card challenge where the participants have to use stamps for their creations. There will be prizes, of course and I promise to give you more details throughout March. So, stay tuned!

Today I'm showing you a clean and simple one layer birthday card. 
On my watercolour card base I used some watercolour crayons in two shades of green and then applied some water. I tried to give it an ombré look. Then I stamped the flower and the sentiment. For the first I also added some colour but this time using pencils. I didn't want to give the flowers very strong colours so that the sentiment would stand up. I was mainly inspired by this week's challenge at Less Is More, which is one layer with the sentiment as the focal point. I was also inspired by some other chalenges. You can see which, at the end of this post.

(on my CAS card I was inspired by the different shades of green from the inspiration photo)
