Hi Everyone! Today's card is for the challenge I'm hosting this week over at the Friday Mashup. This week we're playing with colors and a technique...
Use the colors "Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi & Perfect Plum".
Use "an Aqua Painter or a Blender Pen to create a Watercolor Effect".
Or mash it up with the "Colors above & a Watercolor Effect".
Since I haven't used the set Stippled Blossoms in quite a while I decided to pull it out, dust it off and give it another try. I always love how my cards turn out when I use this set. I used the three colors, but did I give it a watercolor effect? I sure did! It's just a little hard to see in the picture. After I stamped each of the flowers I used my aqua painter to blend the colors together. Usually when I stamp with this set everything is very crisp. It still looks nice, just has more of a blended effect which is what I was looking for. After I blended the colors I let them dry, cut out the flowers and (of course!) spritzed everything with smooch spritz to make it shimmer. :) Don't forget to visit us at the Friday Mashup HERE to check out what all the other designers made. Their cards are fabulous! Well, they are every week, but I loved what each of them did using this week's mashup. Don't forget to play along to show us what you can create. :)
Oh, I almost forgot to add where I got my card design from. Can't forget to mention that! It's been so long since I've played along with a challenge I almost forgot ! lol As soon as I saw this week's sketch challenge from the Paper Players I knew exactly what I was going to make. It usually takes me a while to figure out what I want to do since it never seems to turn out on my card the way I thought it would in my head. Anyone else ever have that problem? lol For once that wasn't the case...whew!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
