Fancy Edge'ables - Doily Lattice with Aquatints

It's the weekend again and I think I may be able to fit in a little crafting time (fingers crossed).

This is a very quick post from me this weekend. I wanted to share with you my first attempt at using Aquatints.I really love the pastel shades that I manage to create with this card although it doesn't show up that well on this photo.

I am going to try this card again but using more vivid / darker colours - will let you know how it turns out. 

If you have the time then pop over to my tutorial page where I am going to look to start posting tutorials on some of the more unusual cards.

Thank you for popping over and hope you have a lovely weekend.
