Hello – and Happy September 1st!
Today, I'm delighted to be guest designing for STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #19. Playing alongside the incredibly talented STAMPlorations’ team is such an honour; thank you for inviting me!!
My card marks the debut of two newcomers to my collection; first, I'm excited to showcase one of the four blooms from the amazing Bloom Sketches set, which I water-coloured with the second new arrival: Twinkling H2Os. The pairing of these blooms with twinkling, sparkly paints…swoon-inducing! I may come to love water-colouring after all. Too soon to tell for sure, but "leaning in that direction" is happening...
STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #19
I stamped/masked (my masking needs much more practice!) the daisy for the background panel, then heat embossed it once again for the main panel. The water-colour base is inset into the coral/orange panel (it looks quite orange here..), so it is a modified one-layer card...I think...
My photo doesn't capture the 'twinkling' of the paints, but trust me: the shimmer and glimmer are quite pretty, and the colours I chose match the paper much better than what's conveyed here. Those flowers have me swooning...and the other three, oh my!! They're lovely - and perfect for stamping, colouring and water-colouring (I can't believe I just said that...). And the sentiments...fabulous. I'm crushing over this set!
Be sure to check out the STAMPlorations blog, where you're sure to be dazzled and delighted by the team's creations. Play along: they're soooooo incredibly welcoming!!
