Hello and welcome
I’m back with a card for HLS Watercolour Challenge for September 2019 with an optional twist of TROPICAL! However, anything watercolour is just fine.
I wasn’t quite sure which direction to take with the “Tropical” twist.
After a bit of fun playing with Brusho and Cosmic Shimmer Powders, I finally decided which way to go.
I started by gold heat embossing Darkroom Door – Fallen Leaves stamp and began to add the powders till I was happy with the effect. I then finished with a light spray of Perfect Pearls water for some extra sheen.
When it was perfectly dry, I cut the ‘Wonderful’ word die from Concord & 9th – Wonderful Florals Die, once from the panel and one from some dark green card.
The embossed panel was attached to a card front and the green letters inserted. A double green frame from Altnew’s ‘Fine Frames Cover Die’ was added around the letters.
A macaw from Kaisercraft ‘ Pina Colada’ was stamped and gold heat embossed, before being coloured with Zig Real Brush Markers and fussy cut.
This was added with dimension tape onto the front, along with the word ‘you’ from SSS Believe set.
The photo doesn’t really do justice to the lovely sparkle and mix of colours on the leaves.
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!
