I’m thrilled to have been chosen as a Favourite at CAS(E) this sketch! Thanks so much for the honour!
It’s time for the next Challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday and I’m thrilled to say that I have the honour of hosting this week’s Feminine ‘Anything Goes’ Challenge!
I decided to try something different this week. I’m not sure if I love it or not!
My idea was to have some gold embossed flowers and use some very wet, loose watercolouring. A big change from my usual style of watercolouring!
As I looked through my stamps, I decided that Altnew’s – Hibiscus Bouquet set was perfect as the images have a lovely fluid outline. They were gold heat embossed onto some Tim Holtz Distress Watercolour card. Kuretake Gansai Tambi ‘deep pink’ water colour gave me the rich colour I wanted for my flowers with ‘evergreen’ for the leaves.
To pull it all together, I added a light wash of blue as well as a little of the pink and green around the images, which faded out towards the middle.
The sentiment is from Altnew’s ‘Label Love’ stamped in Memento ‘Gray Flannel’. I added a little gold embossing to the opposite edges to give it a less formal look.
I know that the very talented Design Team have lots of wonderful and inspiring creations for you to check out on our blog.
I hope you can join us this week!
Have a great week and thanks for visiting
