It is my turn to post on the a2z Scrapbooking blog today and I used a fabulous Hero Arts Basic Grey triangle pattern stencil. Check it out!
While I had the stencil out I decided to play with watercolouring and embossing some more:
I white embossed the Petals of Beauty stamp on watercolour card and added watercolour with Tumbled Glass, Ripe Persimmon, Worn Lipstick and Shabby Shutters distress inks. The panel is cut out with the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die. I inked through the triangles stencil on the card base in the same distress ink colours. I think this card has quite a springy feel to it. I will enter it in to the nature challenge over at Hero Arts.
With this card I inked through the stencil randomly with versamark and white embossed it on watercolour card. I wet the card and then added Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn distress inks. The sentiment is an old HA one.
I will link this up at Happy Little Stampers Embossing Challenge and for a final time at Addicted to Stamps and More Anything Goes Challenge.

I think both cards are absolutely gorgeous. As I'm a fan of blues and greens, the second one is my favourite - brilliant work. Thanks so much for playing along with ASM this week!ReplyDelete
Oh, the first card really blew me away! That explosion of watercolour on that flower and the subtle stencilled background. Just stunning!!! XxReplyDelete
I really love the blend of colours on your first card, its very Spring! Its a very fresh and clean colour palette and very modern with the triangles.ReplyDelete
The soft, unstructured, fluid watercolouring is fabulous with the graphic triangles on both cards, Sarah ... I'm particularly taken with those yummy blues and greens! Anita :)ReplyDelete
