Favourite Word for 2015 at Craft for the Craic

Over at Craft for the Craic the challenge this month is to use your favourite word for 2015 in a project.

Coming up to Christmas a lot of attention was given to the plight of homeless people and that made me grateful for what I have so I decided to do a Thankyou card.

Inspired by Jennifer McGuire's Watercolour Inlay Technique, I sponged Broken China and Evergreen Bough distress inks onto some card before spraying heavily with water. After drying the card I cut out the Marianne Designs sprig from white card which was then sponged with Worn Lipstick and peeled paint and also sprayed with water for watercolour effect. I then used the die to cut the sprig from the first piece of card, and inlaid the watercoured die cut.  Am I making sense?  Just have a look at Jennifer's video here.

I then made another card from the piece die cut out of the watercoloured card, splattering some Broken China and Evergreen Bough ink on the rectangle of card first, and adding some sequins and sparkly Stickles

Looking forward to seeing what you create this month over at Craft for the Craic
