Hello Friend (HLS Watercolour)

IMG_0703 (2)

Hello and welcome

I’m back with another challenge over at  HLS Watercolour Challenge for February, 2020 with the fun  optional twist of BLING!  However, anything  watercolour is just fine.

To begin I stamped this watercolour floral,  featuring Concord & 9th – Hello Lovely, in light ink  up in the top left corner of my panel, ready for no – line water colouring with Distress Inks. I chose a warm colour palette with shades of yellow, orange and pale red for the flowers.  I love these warm, sunny, happy colours which make you feel happy with a warm feeling!! Like a warm day!

The panel was then trimmed to fit a square card front.

The sentiment is from Mama Elephant – Hello Friend Wishes in Brilliance Lightning Black Ink for a little added sparkle!

To finish, I added some small coloured gems to give that essential bling to the card! LOL! Sadly, it is difficult to see it all in the photo, so hopefully it’s clearer in this close up!

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.
