Up the Wall...by Helen Chilton


This week I've made a very quick card using some of Melina's new stamps from this week's Hochanda shows.

When I first saw these flowers I was wondering the best way to use the row of three, then realised they'd be great for an all over background - easy to line up and no masking.

I've stamped onto glossy card in Archival ink and coloured with a water based pen, the Distress Markers - very quick and easy.

For the bricks I went  blue/green. You can blend with your fingers as the ink doesn't dry immediately.

Stamp and colour the text and flowers in the same way.

And there you have it. You could add glitter or gems to your flowers, but I left mine plain.

Tim Holtz Distress Markers: Evergreen Bough, Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed

Hope you've enjoyed this post - you could easily make a set of cards by varying the colours.
