Inspired by Jill

Morning folks...I'm a big fan of the lovely and very talented Jill Foster over at Stampinginspiredby
and INSPIRED you certainly will be if you pop over and visit her blog. Jill is one of the Design Team over at Penny Black and I love the technique videos she does so when I watched the video on how Jill made this beautiful card using Distress Markers...
I had to have a go...I didn't get the same soft watercolour look because I was just too darned impatient when I couldn't find "the filed away in some obscure place" watercolour paper so the ink didn't wick so much when I spritzed it with water...



It looks like we are in for another frantic week of crafty stuff but before we knuckle down it's time for our "blow away the cobwebs" de-stress morning stroll...my furry side-kick will be happy as larry chasing rabbits and I'll be praying for loads of divine inspiration and some extra hours in the day. And the other half of this crafting duo will be joining you tomorrow for another of his "declutter the cubbyhole" give-aways.
Have fun and happy crafting...
Hugs Kath xxx

Beauiful work!

Redanne said...

Hi Kath, I went over and watched the video and the techniques she uses are great but I prefer the spritz and flick look of your piece (maybe because I love that technique) and I do prefer your softer colours. That is a great site though for future reference, thanks for the info and I just love that stamp set you have both used.........hope your day turns out better than you expect. Crafty hugs, Anne x

Pamela said...

Going to try Jill's technique, thought her card was stunning when I seen it the other day. She certainly inspired you Kath. Gorgeous card from you. Carolxx

Kirsty-Anne Davies said...

Hi These are gorgeous just love the bright colours in the first one ! Must try it out ! Thanks for the inspiration ;0)

Paula (PEP) said...

Oh I am SO glad I'm not the only one who does that. I was hunting this morning for the battery charger which I KNEW I'd put somewhere when husband remarked that it had taken up residence in the kitchen & how long was it going to stay there? He had his tidying up hat on again.
As for your card - I reckon it worked pretty well anyhow & I love your words with the sentiment.

LOVE your card inspired by Jill, Kath!! The colors are absolutely gorgeous!! I adore the soft yet so striking design!

Both such beautiful cards Kath. Yours is a softer version and though I love the strong colours in Jill's, your lovely pastels card is so pretty too.

trish said...

Hi Kath love the cards, the colours are gorgeous. These stamps are looking better every time I see you use them, another one on the wish list.

Littleminx said...

Simply stunning card. I love the colour choice. That's another buy thats going to slip in my basket next trip!

Kat said...

Gorgeous card from Jill, Kath, but your's is equally gorgeous. Love those flowers. Love the colours you've used.

Blue and Max see so many rabbits that they just look at them now. I'm pretty sure they would race off and chase them if they weren't on their leads!
