WATERCOLOUR CHALLENGE

Something I haven't done much of before is watercolour painting, so when I saw this challenge on Nicola's blog
http://enjayscraftpages.blogspot.com/
I thought I would give it a go. I stamped the image with Stazon onto photo paper and used Whispers Pens with a water brush for the colour. I also added splishes of glitter glue, mounted onto silver mirri card and added the rub-ob greeting. Not the best I have ever seen, but not too bad for a first attempt!


The second card is an aperture and I put the H2O coloured image behind. The stamp is by Duo Designs. The single flower stamp is Hero Arts and this is embossed with holographic powder and the colour was added using a water brush and ink pad.
The flower is Maya Road and is also embossed with holographic. Love the H20 shimmer effect.

These are fantastic, welldone, the watercolour with the 1920's ladies suits the sketch effect of the stamp perfectly! And the heart is a brilliant idea, the colours are gorgeous!
