A Flower For All Seasons


Today I thought I'd have a go at Just Add Ink's latest challenge. The very clever ladies decided to combine the latest challenge with a Blog Hop. Each blog demonstrated a different technique and to enter the challenge you had to pick a technique to try. I decided to try watercolouring a la Sarah Klass!

Here is the card I made. I used the same stamp set but different stamp. They are great for colouring.

Here's a close up of the watercoloured panel:

I liked Sarah's technique of colouring all around the image, but I didn't have the courage to do that in case I ruined my image. Instead I coloured a little shadow underneath so the basket wasn't hanging in space.

Stamps: A Flower For All Seasons, Happy Moments (retired SAB 2010)
Ink: Stazon, Creamy Caramel, Regal Rose, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand
DSP/Card Stock: Regal Rose Hostess Patterns Pack, Watercolour Paper, Old Olive, Whisper White
Other: Aqua Painter, 1/4" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon

Catch you later,
