Hi everyone. Back with another watercoloured card using my Zig Clean Color Brush Pens. I do love the vibrant shades from these. I used purple today ... not a colour I use very often - not sure why because I love how this turned out. The two shades of purple work perfectly with the silver embossed image and sentiment. Silver ... because that's the challenge at the new CAS challenge at STAMPlorations. So excited to see a CAS challenge there.
I used another free stamp I received from STAMPlorations with one of my orders (gotta love that!). This is French Marigold. Isn't it gorgeous??!! I know marigolds are yellow or orange, but I really wanted to create a purple flower. :)
Originally I just had the flower and the sentiment on my card front, but I thought it would be fun to add some interest to the background, so I randomly inked up spots on my large grid stamp and then heat embossed in silver. I love how it just adds a little somethin' somethin' to the background. :)
Here's a close-up ...
Since I used STAMPloration stamps, I'll also enter this into the STAMPlorations Anything Goes. This challenge is always open ... enter as many times as you like, just as long as your main stamp is made by them.
I have signed up for an on-line watercolouring class that starts on Jan. 25th. There's a pre-class gallery for students to share the watercolouring projects they've been working on, so I'll share this card there as well.
Edited to Add: I used a snippet for my flower, so I'm dropping by the Playground for a visit. :) Had some technical difficulties, so Di is letting me add to this weeks challenge. Thanks Di!
Thanks for dropping by for a visit!
