I can’t believe January is at an end. It’s been a frantic month with home renovations that I have very little time to get crafty. I made quick card using a new watercolor set, Gansai Tambi, that I happily purchased for myself.
So far I’m very happy with the set. I decided to use flowers from Pretty Petals (30-288) as my focal point for the card. The image was stamped on Bristol Paper. I know that watercolor paper is the better choice but I personally don’t like the thickness. I use that paper over watercolor if I know that i will be water coloring lightly. I stamped the image three times starting at the center and then to the left and right. I watercolored the flowers starting from light to dark. A blue watercolor border was added around the panel. To add more depth I rubbed Antique Linen and Spun Sugar Distress Ink in the background. To complete the card I mounted the panel on a larger arcrylic paper panel and then added jute twine. The panel was finally mounted on a green card base.
I am participating in Simon Says Work It Wednesday. The current challenge is to use something new in the card. There are 2 things that are new – Pretty Petals – it’s the first time I used the set and my new watercolor Gansai Tambi set. I am also participating in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.
Enjoy the rest of the week!
