ACCENTED BLOOMS FOR #CI38!

I had a little time yesterday to play along with the Colour Inkspirations Challenge for this week.

#CI38 colours were Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Gray Granite, Whisper White and Basic Black.

I had been using the Accented Blooms stamp set the last few days, which I will show you those cards later on. Since that set was out I thought I would use that.  I think the soft muted colours would work well with a little watercolouring on flowers.

Here is my card.

I came to the conclusion this week that I am not a fan of colouring.  So to colour this for the challenge was a little surprise.  But I think a little freestyle watercolouring can work well.  It doesn’t matter if you go out of the lines. 🙂

I used the Aquapainter and Inkpads to watercolour this. TIP: To watercolour any image I suggest several washes of colour if you want to build up the colour. Then allowing it to dry in between.  For this card I lightly washed sections with the Powder Pink and then allowed it to dry.  It only takes a few minutes.  Wash over the areas with the Gray Granite.  Then wash over again in the areas with the Powder Pink.  I did that 3 times with the Powder Pink as it is such a pale colour.  When it was all dry I washed over the centres of the flowers with the Berry Burst ink.  I allowed it to dry before washing again with the Berry Burst.  It is a time consuming process but I think worth it.

The lovely delicate edge is cut from the Delicate Lace Edgelits.

The sentiment is stamped in Black and punched with the Tailor Tag Punch.  I punched another piece from Berry Burst card.  Cut that piece in half horizontally then could layer it underneath the stamped piece so you see the little pink edge peeking out.  I finished with some Artisan Pearls and some Silver Thread wrapped around a few times.

Now to get this in to the Facebook group before the time is up tonight.  You can head over to the group -> HERE and join in on the challenges.  It’s a great way to extend your creativity.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny
