Forgotten Friday 8

I can hardly believe it is Friday again already but it is so here is my card for Judith's Forgotten Friday challenge. This time the forgotten element is some watercolour paper which I inherited and my Prismalo watercolour pencils which haven't been used for a while either.  This paper is very thick and heavily textured and I wasn't sure how it would stamp but it seems to have taken the impression well enough.  I originally stamped it and started colouring with Polychromos pencils but I found the result too patchy due to the texture of the paper so I stamped the image again and tried with the watercolour pencils which seem to have worked better.  The stamp is a Forever Friends from Papermania and the background paper is some which I had printed ages ago so I'm afraid I can't remember the source but I knew it was somewhere in my stash and thought it would go well with this image.  I added a piece of kraft card which has been embossed using a Cuttlebug folder and inked to bring out the pattern. Do pop over to Judith's blog to see her work - she is also guest designer for the Bah Humbug challenge this week and working on that one is my next task.


  1. Thanks for joining in my Forgotten Friday post again this week. I love the colours that you have chosen, so bright and cheery. I quite like stamping on textured watercolour paper, as you say, it works well enough. The textured card looks great, Judith xx

  2. What a cute card, I like the way you have used the embossed backing. I love this challenge that Judith has started, it really makes you use all that stuff you just shut away in the cupboards.

  3. Isn't it amazing at the things we need a nudge to use again...great colouring on your card Val.


  4. Lovely card Val - and some sneaky new stamps I fancy!!
