Have a Beautiful Day!

Hi All

Today I wanted to do some watercolouring and here is what I created: 

I was inspired by the card by Jenni at Muse. You can see Jenni's card here or at the bottom left of this post. I took from Jenni's card:

-The use of flowers to cover the card base-quite unusual for me and although I didn't manage to cover the whole base
-the sentiment strip but I used vellum
-the water colour look-I am not sure if Jenni's card is water coloured but it looks it!

The colours at Colour Throwdown really caught my eye this week. I thought it an usual combo but loved it and wanted to have a play.

I used my new stamp from STAMPlorations, heat embossed it in white then used water colours in orange, red and yellow. I then just splattered some purple paint around.

The sentiment was heat embossed in orange. I placed the card onto a red base as I thought my red water colour paint was quite pale and wanted to add a more vibrant red. Although in the photo it appears orange, I assure you it is red!

This was fun to make and the water colouring very relaxing.

Enjoy your day

  13. Such a pretty card. Beautiful colours.

  14. I think you managed to keep this vibrant card both stylish and non messy. I went in a totally different direction being inspired by graffiti as well as these colors. Or maybe I was thinking tagging, I don't know, lol.

  15. Those vibrant colours on these sunny blooms positively glow, Sandie ... they're fabulous with the bright sentiment! Hugs, Anita :)
