Water Me

Time for a quick card this morning.  Playing along with the colour challenge at Splitcoast.  These colours were right up my alley.
I began by creating the background for my panel by inking the Circular Design from Penny Black with shades of green Distress inks.  I sprayed with water to blend, then stamped off onto scrap paper before going on to my panel to give a more muted look.  Then, I coloured the flower stamps with Memento markers, sprayed with water and stamped over the background.  This Rubbernecker flower is a two-part stamp.  I mounted the panel on a piece of blue cardstock the pop dotted it onto my card front after adding the sentiment.

Adding my card to these challenges:

  3. Oh, Karen, this is absolutely my favorite shade of blue that you use!! And also with this green! It just says "Karen made me!" Such a beautiful card with a wonderful sentiment for someone special...like you, my sweet friend! You always delight and put a smile on my face! Warm hugs, sweet friend! Spring is coming!

  4. So Beautiful Karen, love the water color look flower and the pretty background! I love it when you use lots of blue on your cards :)

  5. Beautiful! I love that great patterned paper you created with the circular stamp and the flowers are so pretty!

  6. Nice card, Karen! Great bkgrd and I like the way the flowers are over-stamped slightly out of the lines. It looks GOOD on your card when you do it but I always feel on mine, it looks like I "missed the mark." Hee! :)

  7. This is so vibrant and beautiful, Karen! I love it...blue is my favorite color.

  8. Very beautiful, Karen. You make so lovely water color cards!
