Happy Birthday ( HLS -Watercolour)

Hello and welcome

Today I’m back with HLS Watercolour Challenge for February, 2021. This year it’s Anything Goes so long as it features watercolour.

I started by watercolouring this flower bouquet from HA Make It Personal Stamp Set – Togetherness Flower Bouquet. It was then fussy cut and Wink of Stella gave it sparkle.

I used smooching and spraying on a piece of card using Cosmic Shimmer and Distress Inks to create a soft background with yellows, pinks and touches of gold. It is lovely and sparkly IRL!

Once this panel was dry, I diecut a large heart using XCut Hearts Nesting Dies, and one from vellum.

The card front then had Sizzix Time Holtz Alterations 4 Dies cut in one corner. This was then added to the coloured card and then the card front. The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped along the bottom.

The 2 hearts were layered with the vellum at the back, before adding it the the card front.

To finish the bouquet was added using raised tape.

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!  Good luck!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Wishing you a great 2021!!!

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.
