This is Dearest Loved One.

Today is Saturday and that means it is time for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. Our host today took us to the sweetest Pinterest Board ever, a board all about Needle Minders. I dare say I had not a clue what a Needle Minder was until today.

In any event I picked this minder for my inspiration. I have had this Hero Arts set for awhile now and it has never seen ink until now. Poor stamp was drowned today!

I used my watercolours to paint the stamp, applying Burnt Umber to the deer to get the rich brown colour. I filled in with a bit of distress ink in Tea Dye.

Using the stamps that come with the set, I painted the flower stamp with Opera Pink, and added some berries with the same, and added in a bit of Quinnacridone Pink to the Opera Pink. For the green leaves I used Sap Green. and for the background I used DaVinci Leaf Green.

This was the perfect card to add in a little bird, so in went Chirp Chirp which I painted with Cadmium Yellow and Transparent Orange lightly over the yellow.

On my card base I stenciled using A Colorful Life Stencil Pebble Fans using the Distress Ink in Tea Dye. I was thinking of the pebbles in the forest. And to finish a few drops of Nuvo Key Lime Jewel drops and the sentiment stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink.

I do hope you have enjoyed this card as much as I did making it. Thank you for visiting today. Following are Affiliate links to the products I have used on today’s card. LinkDeli seem to be having a problem with the links, hence the company I use Scrapbook.com is not showing, instead there is a shopping bag. But the link is correct and will take you to the correct product.

A reminder when shopping at A Colorful Life Designs for the beautiful stencils to use my discount code when checking out of Kia10.
