I am so ready for the weekend :) Are you?!
I have been really enjoying the current Watercolour Class for Cardmakers there is so much amazing inspiration from all of the designers. I haven't had much time to experiment due to work this week but will try to catch up over the weekend
I have a few simple cards to share today using techniques from Days 1 and 2.
I wanted to try out Laura Bassen's technique of stamping with acrylic blocks. I used a small square block and overlapped the colours to get this look. I used a range of distress inks including Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint. I cut the panel out with the Wonky Rectangle from Spellbinders and white embossed this sentiment from WPlus9. I thought that some splatters would work well in the background :) I am finding the main challenge of working with watercolours is the lack of control....however whilst this isn't perfect I quite like the variation of colour. I think it will work for a guy card.
I have also made this card with the great Altenew Ori Kami set:
I simply white embossed the image and sentiment and created a watercolour background with Dusty Concord. Milled Lavender and Scattered Straw distress inks. I will join in with Time Out Challenges latest challenge to create a project inspired by 'Time Flies, Love Lasts'. I think the bird image and sentiment work with the theme.
Thanks for your visit - I hope to see you again soon :)
