Thinking of You (HLS – Watercolour)

Hello again

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

I have something a little different today. This piece was made using a Tim Holtz Wildflower Layering stencil.

After I had used the stencil there was lots of ink remaining on the stencil itself, so rather than waste it, I put it over a piece of card and wiped gently towards the openings using a baby wipe to move the ink. The moisture content in the baby wipe worked like water and made this beautiful soft ghost like image on the paper. I was very pleased and decided to make it into a card today.

The panel was then cut using Altnew die and layered on a scrap of vellum before adding to the card front.

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. Very nice. I love how you’ve used the extra ink on the stencil. It’s a silhouette like look, but not in black! I love the muted tone and the simple design of the card. Lovely card, Helen.
