This card just shouted give me color - have some fun - so the Flowers won out, but just for awhile. I do need sympathy cards, and might just have to adapt this one. So out came my color -
I love watercoloring - for this month's projects I used inks and my aqua-painters. If you look at my last post I used watercolor pencils and blender pens, and the post before that I used a set that mimics the watercolor look. There are so many different ways to achieve a watercoloring look on your cards. So here are my projects after the color was added. On the card I used the Spotlighting technique which is my Technique for my technique clubs this month.
Carrying just a little of that floral image into the center of the card to give it a finished look inside also -Then, to finish off my ensemble - I created this beautiful little basket that could hold all types of birthday treasures - it starts with a 7.5" x 7.5" square of whisper white. I randomly stamped and watercolored the flowers. Scored the cardstock like a tic tac toe with even sections of 2.5" x 2.5" - cut in on the score lines on two opposite sides, and pulled those corners together to make the basket.
Added a 1" x 7.5" handle that was also stamped and watercolored. Along with some bling on both the basket and card - and here you go!
Hope you like the projects - please leave a comment. And maybe this will inspire each of you to do some watercoloring. Now hop along to the rest of the bloggers and see all their creations! See you all soon ~Maureen
