Hello (HLS – Watercolour)

I would like to thank everyone over at Altnew for selecting may card for Creative Honors in their Pair-A-Flower Challenge this year! So exciting !

 Our first Pair-A-Flower photography contest.

Creative Honors: …. is this beautiful floral card by Helen inspired by her personal azalea bush. We love how she created this DIY look with our Springtime Azalea Stamp Set and Beautiful Bergenia 3D Embossing Folder.

Hello and welcome

Today I’m back with HLS Watercolour Challenge for September, 2021. This year it’s Anything Goes so long as it features watercolour. So easy to join in!

My card features Altnew – Springtime Azalea stamp set.

I am comparing my card with the photo taken of my azalea bush at home. I chose to focus on the middle cluster of flowers.

I started by stamping flowers and leaves, watercolouring them with Distress Inks. Before fussy cutting, I stamped the stamens, their tips and some fo the spots on the petals.

A panel was embossed with Altnew – Beautiful Berenia 3D Embossing Folder.

The flowers and leaves were then arranged on the card front using a mix of tape, glue and raised tape to get some variation in height.

The sentiment is Altnew – Fancy Hello Die.

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.

Stay safe

Cheers

Helen

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.
