Design Team Make for "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" 399 "Water Colour"
It's time for another challenge on the "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog". The challenge #399 theme is "Water Colour". This is my Design Team make for this prompt. If you do have a minute spare, please do pop over and see the fab makes my Design Team colleagues have created.
I started this card by using a paint brush, giving the background a water colour wash using my Prima Watercolour Confections set.
Once dry, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Nigella Damascena" in Distress Oxide Inks, first in the shade of "Bundled Sage" for the stem and foliage and then I used a mix of Dusty Concord and Faded Jeans for the heads of the flowers applied with a paint brush.
I then gave the flowers a fine spritz of water as I wanted to give the stamped image a more water colour look as if it was bleeding into the background wash a little.
Once this was dry, Using a Versafine Ink pad in the shade of "Stormy Gray", I stamped the sentiment which is also by Lavinia Stamps and is called "Sparkle". Finally, I used a silver glitter Signo Pen to add some highlights to the flower heads.
