These are the moments ...

Hi everyone.  Back with a reminder card for the CAS Watercolour October Challenge - Orange, Green, and Brown, hosted by our wonderful Bonnie.


I'm playing with one of the new release stamps from Penny Black.  Just received this a couple of days ago and couldn't wait to play with it ... I just LOVE the image.  I used markers to add the ink directly to my stamp, spritzed with a little water and stamped onto hot press watercolour paper.  I repeated a couple more times until I was happy with the look.  Stamped the sentiment in dark brown ink and splattered more of the same colour, along with green, over the front of my card to finish the design.

Here's a close-up ...
It's our 2nd birthday celebration.  Come join the fun!

I love this, Loll. It reminds me of the PB Leaves and Berries which I've done in the same technique.

Just catching up on my commenting today and I am getting spoiled here on your blog, Loll! Gorgeous watercolour blend results with this marker/spritz technique. Your splattering is always amazing... I need a lesson or 100 from you. 😉 Once again, your use of this challenging (to me) colour palette is effortless. xx

Delicate, dreamy and so lovely, Loll ... the soft colours are gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)

Love the fall theme, so delicate and the colours just flow into one another. The splatters add to the windy fallings, definitely a special time of year. That's how nature gives us all it's love before leaving. Another beauty dear friend, xx

Brenda said...

Such a beautiful autumn card. Great colors, light color saturation will make the image look like tree leaves viewed from below when they are sunk. WOW! Incredible impression, Loll.
