Please meet our Guest Designer:

Trina




Hi there.  I'm Trina and I live on the West Coast of Canada in Vancouver with my husband.  I was drawn to this paper crafting hobby in 2005, but it wasn't until this time last year when I started my blog that I became obsessed with card making.  *lol*  Time sure flies when you're having fun.  I love making all types of cards from interactive to CAS, but lately I am loving CAS.  I'm really enjoying being part of this crafting community and am excited to be guest designing here for this challenge.  
You can find me at:

Challenge #130 - Designers Choice - Watercolour Smooshing



Welcome back to Inkspirational. Today, Kim has chosen our challenge and she has chosen 'watercolour smooshing' . If you're not sure what that is, Kim has provided a link to a tutorial .

Please meet our Guest Designer:

Henriette


Hi, I’m HenriĆ«tte van Mierlo, 47 years. I live in The Netherlands with my boyfriend Robert and I have a 15 year old daughter. I work 4 days a week in financial administration and in my sparetime I love to craft, especially card making.
I’ve been making cards for many years, starting with 3d cards (learning by watching my mother make those) . Nowadays I like to make clean and simple style cards using  all kinds of cardmaking techniques.
I color my stamps not only with alcohol markers and watercoloring inks but also digital in Photoshop (a magical tool). Not only do I use clear/rubber stamps but also digital stamps.
Other creative hobbies I like are making cute things with polymer clay or felt (kawaii style), watercoloring, planning, making nylon or paper flowers and wire bending.
To stay fit I go to the gym 2 times a weeks and I also like to read books from as long as I can remember (mostly travelstories).
Here are the links to my blog, facebook, pinterest and instragram if you would like some more samples or if you would like to follow me.




Here's what our DT made:
