Hello …From the Heart (HLS – Watercolour)

Hello and welcome

It’s the first of February so I’m back for HLS Watercolour Challenge for February, 2022. As always it’s Anything Goes so long as it features watercolour. So easy to join in!

I was pleased with how bright and happy today’s card is. Just perfect for that special friend for any occasion.

I started by gold heat embossing the Paper Rose – Mandala Ornament stamp. I then used Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, Slaty Ocean and Wilted Violet Distress inks to paint wet washes of colour to form a rainbow of colours, being sure to wash the colour out to the edges of the panel.

It was then sprayed lightly with Glimmer Mist- Bubbles spray, which has a light blue tinge, to give it a lovely shimmer.

The ‘hello’ die from Paper Rose was cut from the bottom of the panel and from white card.

The heat embossed sentiment is from an old “There She Goes’ stamp set.

The panel was then added to a white card front and the ‘hello’ was layered up with the white and then topped with the coloured die cut.

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. Stunning Helen, love the gold and off the edge. Wonderful wash and mixed so well. Do like that blue spray, haven’t heard of that before but adds the perfect finishing touch x

  2. This is gorgeous, Helen. That mandala is so intricate and beautiful. It looks fantastic embossed in gold. The colors make it stand out beautifully and I love the embedded sentiment. Thanks for playing with us at TIme Out.

  3. Incredibly gorgeous, Helen! That mandala is very charming – it would work out for any Indian festival or celebration, especially with that rainbow of colors and shine. Very festive.
