Blue Coneflowers

 Welcome to this week's LIMES inspiration post!

I chose this card as my inspiration from the gallery of this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper!

LIST: Colours (red, green, white), Techniques (misted watercolour), Elements (3 flowers, leaves, slimline, hugs sentiment)

INCLUDE: flowers

MODIFY: blue instead of red, die cut instead of stamping, inkblending instead of watercolour, white splatter instead of white gel pen highlights

EXCLUDE: sentiment


I love the loose watercolour look of Dina's flowers! The soft bleed of the colours onto the background is so pretty! 

I have this coneflower die set from Honey Bee Stamps - it was one of those 'I MUST HAVE THIS' items at the time, but I haven't used it much after that initial honeymoon period. lol! I dug it out and blended ink onto just some of the layers. My blending was very patchy, in two colours of yellow for the centres (plus brown) and two colours (plus a yellow-green) for the flowers and leaf. I drew the stems with a black marker.

I spritzed water onto the flowers and leaves, and lifted some of the colour. Then I splattered white acrylic paint, navy ink and gold watercolour on the flowers and also onto a panel of white cardstock and navy cardstock. I cut a narrow frame from the navy cardstock to go around the white panel.
