Today’s card is for the challenge over at Global Design Project! Here’s the sketch they gave us
When I saw other examples of the sketch and they used flowers, I immediately knew I was going to use the new limited edition Blended Seasons Stamp Set!
The flower cluster image is a bit large, so the sample sketch layer on top had to be larger….so hope that is OK to do and still meet the requirements of the challenge. I used one of the fun shaped Framelits that comes with the bundle. It kinda reminds me of the old Top Note Die Stampin’ Up! used to sell….which I miss and love so much!!!!
Here’s a close up of the flowers, so much fun to color in!
I’m definitely not the best colorist out there…..that’s why I really like watercoloring. It’s very forgiving and I don’t try to think too much about it. I let each layer dry in between and added more color on top, but let the water do the work for me. I also colored two flower images and cut them up to place unto my card in a way that best fit the sketch. I used the retired Gold Wink of Stella for the center of each bloom, adds a touch of sparkle. Who doesn’t love sparkle, right?
Here’s another view…..
I used the Naturals White Cardstock that SU! used to sell too (it’s retired now, sorry)….I still have a TON of it! It just gives a subtle difference in the two whites to not be over done and distracting. The baker’s Twine is also retired…..I’m trying to use up what I have because I’m a hoarder, lol. Does anyone else have that problem? Surely I’m not the only one;)
Well, thank you so much for stopping by and have a blessed day! ❤
