Warm Thoughts

Hi there

Tonight I've been watercolouring.  I've had a set of watercolour paints for years but they haven't seen the light of day for a very long time.

So here's a little card I created to combine a few challenges...

I downloaded a free digi and printed this onto watercolour card which just about made its way through my printer!  I gave it a blast with my heat gun to set the ink as I had no idea if the ink would bleed or not.  As it turns out it was fine when mixed with the water.  Once the card was dry I stamped the sentiment.  I cut the panel down and mounted it using 3D foam strips onto a purple card base, picking out the colour of the towel.  

Materials used:
  • Digi image: Opal Manor - Beach (free download)
  • Watercolours: Daler Rowney
  • Stamp: Paper Smooches - Sentiment Sampler
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black

Challenge entries:

Less is More - Week 187 - I do like to be beside the seaside
Daring Cardmakers - Clean and Simple
A Gem of a Challenge - Challenge #127 - It's Summertime
AAA Cards - Game 18 - CAS Watercolour

I'm also going to link up with my teamies at Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #111 - Anything Goes (for Marie)

Apologies for the lack of posts the last few days, life just gets in the way sometimes!  That's all I have at the moment but I hope to be back again very soon.  Thanks for your visit as always.

Bye for now
