Hello and welcome
I’m back with a card for HLS Watercolour Challenge for August 2019 with an optional twist of OCEAN! However, anything watercolour is just fine.
I had been looking at SSS- Summer Cuddly Critters Stamp set for a while, so when this month’s challenge was ‘ocean’, it was the perfect chance to play!
I started by cutting a watercolour card and white heat embossing the sentiment, and bubbles. Next I added Distress inks, first with a brush on wet and then adding some smooching to give more depth and interest. Finally, I sprayed with Glimmer Mist for some sparkle.
I then stamped a section of Kaisercraft coral reef stamp in Antique Linen DI and painted with various Distress Inks.
The cute purr-maid was stamped on another piece of card and watercoloured again with DI. I made a template for her tail and cut it from some sparkle paper, before fussy cutting and gluing to the water panel. The panel was glued to the card front.
Finally, I added Wink of Stella to the bubbles and her bikini top.
Please head over to our blog and check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team! I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month. Good luck!
