Be filled with JOY (HLS – Watercolour)

Hello and welcome

Wow!! Here we are on the first day of 2022! I truly hope this year will be a good one for everyone. Being the 1st means it is the time for the first HLS Watercolour Challenge for January, 2021. This year it’s Anything Goes so long as it features watercolour. So easy to join in!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 6e20e-hls2bxmas2btemplate.png

I have started by creating an easy watercolour floral card.

To begin I white heat embossed Altnew – Paint-a-Flower: Paeonia Japonica on a piece of watercolour card. (A stamp I love but haven’t always been happy with the outcome.)

It was then only a matter of doing very loose wet on wet watercolouring using Distress Inks to colour the image. Finally, I was much happier with the outcome.

The sentiment is from the same set.

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.

  1. Its a gorgeous image, indeed and I love your watercoloring – especially how the color extends beyond the image, and into the background. Gives a beautiful illusion of more flowers in the background.
