I was inspired by all the beautiful colours and the way they are all swooshed around the pallete
Here is my Design Team Make for the Challenge...
I have stepped out of my own Comfort Zone this week to create this card, I have been pushing myself to try new things lately and bringing out more of my older art supplies to test them in my crafting
For this project I trimmed a piece of watercolour card to fit the front of my A5 cardblank which i also made using an A4 sheet of pearlescent cardstock that I score and folded in half to create the card blank. For the background I first sprayed the watercoloure card all over using a water spray and then using a soft paintbrush I randomly painted Twinkling h2o watercolours watered down to create a wash effect, I love how the mica in the paints sparkles. I then sprinkled table salt over the background to create the random speckle, pitted look, I dried the whole background using a heatgun and it was really fun to watch the salt bubbling under the heat. Once dry I brushed off the salt.
I added some extra spoltches and textured look using the 'Spritz & Speckles' clear stamp set, I used a blending mat to paint the h2o's onto and dabbed the stamps into the paints to stamp them onto the background.
I randomly stamped over the edges of the back ground using the 'Knitted Background' and 'A Lot Like Christmas' stamps I had roughly dapped with an Archival inkpad to give the miss-stamped look, the script from the Christmas stamp when stamped randomly looks just like old script and you cant really tell its a christmas stamp
I added a few random Spots & Circles using Blue ink using a few stamps from the 'Doll Face' set
The dandelion looking flowers were made using elements from the 'DesignA Knit' stamp set
Of course because this was out of my Comfort Zone what better sentiment to use but the 'Comfort Zone' stamp from the New 'You Quotes' collection
Thank you for visiting today - I hope you enjoyed seeing my Project and I would love to see all your entries over at the Paperbabe Challenge
