I stamped it with Memento ink so I could use my Promarkers to colour it in. I used a Sizzix polaroid die to cut it out which has a separate centre panel. This meant I could take it out and use Distress ink to add some ageing along with some water spots. I popped the centre back into the frame and used some foam pads to mount it onto the background. The background too was given an ageing treatment with Distress ink and water spots.
I layered up a film strip with some notebook edge and the Notebook Paper washi tape was attached to a piece of wax paper and put into my typewriter so I could add a little text.

Morning all. Lisa here to share some inspiration. Unfortunately my Little Princess has been poorly so in lieu of a new creation I thought I would give you a closer look at my challenge piece…
As I said before it’s not a card and I’m not quite sure what it is but I was playing with the stamps and had my watercolour paints out and this just kinda happened. I’m not into journaling or anything like that but I think I may pop this into a little folder and maybe add to it now and then, when the mood strikes.
I stamped everything in waterproof ink onto watercolour card. The central square included some masking as the coloured panel is all one piece. Here is a close up picture…
The colour has been added using watercolour pans and a water brush and I’ve also sponged some of the paint through one of Sarah’s stencils. The details have been added with a WoS brush pen, a ProMarker and a silver gel pen.

For my project share, I did half a dozen of 3x3 note cards using two stamp sets, Cupcake & Be Mine sets, both from Sarah Hurley.
I have been keeping these 3x3 note cards for some time in my stash but didn't know how I will be consuming them all with those bold colors. A better way then is to do some decorations and just play with the stamps I already have.
Just a quick look on the supplies that I have used:
I cut the patterned paper a little smaller than my 3x3 card base and also die cut vellum with a circle die. I wanted to have my main stamped images to be my focal point and vellum will keep part of the pattern paper to be subdued in color.
I then stamped random images from the two stamp sets. I used the big ones here, cupcake, party hat, typewriter, some of the leaves and the jar.
I colored the images with promarker. For the cupcake, I did it two ways, one was paper pieced (pink frosting) while the other was colored with promarker (purple frosting), just trying out some variety.
For the rest of my stamped images, I colored them with promarker.
Here's what I got with all the images, ready to be used.
For the base, I added a strip of fabric tape for some texture and grounding of the image. I just inserted the vellum over the fabric tape to hold it in place.
I also stamped part of the envelope with the same chosen images used also in my main card.
Then, I assembled the images and put each a bow while the other two with wood veneer x for some fun texture. I keep the image offset in the left as I don't want them to be too centered, just keeping a little playfulness in the layout.
