Saturday Savers and watercolours - Gio

Saturday Savers is back. I do hope you are enjoying this new Saturday feature as much as we are creating the samples. No exception with Gio today, who made the most adorable card from a Tim Holtz packaging and I'm sure she had a lot of fun doing so.



 I upcycled the plastic package of the Tim Holtz embellishments: Film strip Ribbon.
I created an original card that could contain a mini album or just a message.

I cut a piece of white cardstock to size. I grated some flakes from the Inktense blocks on the craft sheet, then I spritzed water. 
I swooshed the white cardstock on the craftsheet. When dry I added other shades. 
I made the same for 4 little circle of white cardstock. I stamped the background using Dylusions stamps: Background love and Distress ink pad.
I stamped some text on a piece of gessoed Tim Holtz tissue tape and I adhered to the card. I stamped the sentiment on the little circles and I linked them with a jump ring. I slid the cardstock on the plastic package and I added the embellishments.
