Hello there! I'm sharing a card today that I'll be entering in 3 challenges, The Daily Marker's 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Have a Heart, and Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge 37, Anything Goes.
I'm trying to participate in as many days as I can this time for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge (I've kind of dropped the ball in the past and have never made more than about 12 days lol!) On days 1 and 2 I watercolored the flowers you see on my card using distress inks for the little flowers and Kuretake Gansai Tambi on the roses (the flowers stamps are from Winnie & Walter). I'm definitely a beginner when it comes to watercolor but it is fun to practice, and I found the Kuretake watercolors a bit easier to use on this Canson watercolor paper than the distress inks (the colors blended a bit better for me). The plaid background was made on day 3, and to make that I used Wild Honey and Worn Lipstick distress inks, along with a couple different sizes of flat brushes, to watercolor the plaid. I got this idea from Debby Hughes (of course she did a MUCH better job than I did but then she is absolutely amazing!!!) The leaves, hearts, and washi strip are all die cut from MFT dies. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps Artful Flowers. These colors, along with the flowers and plaid totally scream SPRING to me, how about you?
Thanks for stopping by today!
