Happy Long Weekend!
Meet today's card. Just a fun challenge at Splitcoast, to create a card you would like to receive for your own birthday. Since I love the look of watercolour, here is what I came up with.
I used my Brushos to watercolour the bkg. I just sprinkled a bit of the Brushos onto my acrylic block and picked up the pigment using a wet paint brush. I find it best to wet the watercolour paper first before adding the colour for a better blend of colour. (I used 90 lb. paper)
While that was drying, I stamped the flowers from the Pretty Petals stamp set by Penny Black. It has such a great collection of fun flowers that are perfect for Copic colouring or watercoloring. Again, I used my Brushos to colour the flowers. When they were dry, I fussy cut them out and pop dot mounted them to my card front. I used a white Signo pen to do the flower centers. The sentiment is from a set called Sprinkles and Smiles also from Penny Black. I have used that set a lot.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
Little Red Wagon- CLEAN and SIMPLE
Simon Says- MAKE IT COLOURFUL
Craft Stamper- TAKE A STAMP, ANYTHING GOES
Happy Little Stampers- COLOURING
Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.
