Thinking of You (in Blue)

Congratulations to this week's Featured Stamper, CAR372.

I chose this card as my inspiration:

LIST: Colours (green, black, white), Techniques (die cutting, stamping), Elements (botanicals with black outlines, 3 panels, semi circle sentiment strip, gems)

INCLUDE: Monochrome colour scheme, botanicals with black outlines, 3 panels, semi circle element, gems

MODIFY: green to blue, stamping and watercolouring instead of die cuts, 2 cards, orientation of cards, 

EXCLUDE: Die cut leaves

SPIN: 2 for 1 design

I started by stamping my floral image on a piece of watercolour cardstock and then coluring it in with Karin markers (any watercolours you have will do, I just wanted to practice with these). I used 3 blues and a deep indigo to add colour.

Then I spritzed the whole panel with water, and sprinkled some blue watercolour powder over top to create my background. 

I cut the panel in half and then cut out a half circle frame from one, and trimmed the other into 3 panels. I finished with a Taylored Expressions sentiment and some Crafty Meraki gems.

  1. Gorgeous results Ardyth - love how you have created the background of the same colours as the flowers. Your semi circle is ingenious!
