WWC233 – Karen’s Feminine “Anything Goes” Challenge

P1080289 (2)

Thank you so much to The Flower Challenge Team for selecting my card for Top Pick for the August Challenge.

Hello and welcome

It’s time for a new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday. This week is Karen’s  “Feminine “Anything Goes Challenge”. So I hope you will find the time to share your work!

My card features one of my favourite flowers, the hydrangeas.  I love their gorgeous colours and their large flower heads covered with small flowers. It is one of my oldest and well used stamps.

I started by stamping the image on a piece of watercolour card, masking and restamping to both to left and right to give the impression of a large bunch of blooms.

These were then watercolured using Distress Inks and Tombow Pens.  Centres used a gold pen.  The panel was trimmed and sprayed with Glimmer Mist to add some sparkle and texture.

I had decided to die cut Birthday using MFT – “Celebration” die set and use the eclipse technique.  However, I decided I like the white look as the image is so busy. Using some white shimmer card, I recut the word and adhered it to the card.

The panel was adhered to dark blue card and then the white card front.

The sentiment was white heat embossed using a section of a sentiment from MFT – Sweetest Somebunny Stamp set.

I love playing with this image.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. The masking you did to get this beautiful bouquet of hydrangeas is just stunning! This is one of my favorite flowers also. Thank you for sharing this at Seize the Birthday
