Hello and welcome
Today I’m back with HLS Watercolour Challenge for August, 2021. This year it’s Anything Goes so long as it features watercolour. So easy to join in!
This month my card has no colouring!!!! How amazing!!
I started by making a panel of various green Distress Inks. I slowly built up the layers of colour by smooching the inks and drying between layers. I kept going till I liked the variety of colour.
It was then time to stamp Mama Elephant – Wild Meadow stamp, placing it where I thought there was a difference in the colours. It was the fussy cut.
A black, then narrow white strip of card was added to the base.
A piece of black card was embossed using Craft Concepts – Christmas Vine EF.
A section of this EF card was added to the corner of the card front and then the vine panel was added.
The sentiment from the Mama Elephant and the little black butterflies stamped using the M E Butterfly Kisses set.
I was pleased with the way it came together and all those greens 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.
I look forward to seeing what you create! Good luck!
