Hello and welcome
I’m back with a card for HLS Watercolour Challenge for November 2019 with an optional twist of ANIMALS! However, anything watercolour is just fine.
My card this month started with me having lots of fun playing with Brusho powders and Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders.
I love that you never know exactly how it will turn out and that you can continue to add more colour until you are happy.
Once it was dry, I cut the oval ‘forest’ die from Hero Arts – Monthly Hero Set -May 2018 twice from black card.
I also cut the plain oval die from a black card front in black.
It was then only a matter of cutting the forest images apart to make 2 sides of the scene. On the left there are 2 layers offset, overlapping partsand then adding some of the cut parts along the bottom.
I removed the swing and instead stamped the girl on the swing, the dog, squirrel, birds and some leaves using the matching stamp set.
I felt the scene looked like an abstract sort of forest background with lots of variations of green along with some reds, browns and yellows.
To keep it simple, I white heat embossed the sentiment from Kaisercraft – Life Sentiments. I love that it can be used for a birthday card for any age.
I love working with black paper and card as it is the perfect foil for so many projects. It helps colours to ‘pop’, draws the eye to the image or sentiment it frames and of course it is just perfect to ensure sentiments stand out.
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.
I look forward to seeing what you create this week! Good luck!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. I love to read your comments.
Have a great day
