White With 1 June

Did you know that Charms Creations are a sponsor for White With 1 this month?! So, I thought I had better make sure I did this challenge and it is such a gorgeous colour too, Biscay Bay, a beautiful blue to remind us of summer in these colder winter months!



So this is what I ended up with:



I found that the new distress ink Mermaid Lagoon was a pretty good colour match so started with creating my background. I used a new stencil that I picked up at the Craft Show by Stencil Girl and used it with gesso on my background. Once dry I swiped my ink pad onto a piece of plastic bag and spritzed with water and painted onto the stenciled area, I love how the gesso resists the ink. I wiped over the gesso area with a baby wipe afterwards to clean it up a bit too.


I have some older Heidi Swapp watercolour shapes that I coloured up with the ink, I also used this as my title.


This one is one of the Heidi Swapp resist shapes (colour magic I think?!)  They came up a treat with the ink.


Of course I had to use a Charms Creations on my page. I chose a white felt star and layered it with a coloured star that I stapled on for interest.

The only other addition was some black stripe washi tape for contrast and some enamel dots to finish.

Oh and the little cutie is my nephew! I think he is on his way to being a ladies man!

Make sure you check out the WW1 challenge and inspiration and maybe you can win some Charms Creations too!

Thanks for stopping by,
