Dancing in Time for Happy Daze

Hi, This is my DT piece for Happy Daze and the theme is April Showers which loosely means you have to use water in your craftings.  So today am showing you what can be achieved with a little water.............


Now I expect you are wondering where the water was used ................or do you know already?


Products used:
Canvas Board, Texture Paste, Distress Inks, Inka Gold and Copper, Olive Green Stazon and Water from the Tap.....
Stamps by
Lost Coast Designs and B Line Designs

Have you guessed yet...........of course you have.  The water was used to wet the background stamps so they could easily and cleanly stamp into the Texture Paste.

Have created this to be the front cover of one of my Art Journals.  Hope you like it and have to say it was great fun to do.  Thank you for visiting and hope you have your entries in this month as there is yet again a fab £15 prize voucher to be won.

Take care of yourselves, Hugs Annette x
