Hello everyone. Today is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and this time Nichole has given us a watercolour challenge with this inspiration picture of watercoloured ice lollies and a grey script sentiment over the top.
I decided to go with a floral theme and used one of the smaller flowers from Pretty Peonies, which I am ashamed to say has been sitting in my stash unused for more than two years. I took a panel of white card and randomly stamped the flowers using a pale grey ink.
I watercoloured the flowers and leaves, and then added a blue wash between them. Once everything was dry, I stamped the sentiment ( from Wet Paint 3) in grey ink using my Misti. I had to stamp a few times to get enough colour down to give some contrast with the background.
Next I used 2 rectangle dies to cut the centre and outer frame, and matted both of them onto hibiscus burst card. I glued the outer frame flat on the card and then raised the centre panel with some fun foam. As I wanted to keep the design CAS, just a few little glitter dots finished it off.
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. PTI's Blog Hoppers always amaze me with their fabulous projects.
I'd like to play along with
