Celebration


Let's face it.  I am addicted to watercolouring and to using my Distress inks and just playing.  I love that you can get a different look every time and since they are water based, blending is so simple.  This card was inspired by a card I saw done by Marion Vagg.  I loved it and wanted to try my hand at it.
I pulled out my Paper Smooches stamps and started inking, spraying and randomly stamping.  Love the mottled look of the stamped image.  I used Mowed Lawn; Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks on my card.
I am adding my card to the challenge at Simon Says Stamps; Anything Goes.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Paper Smooches/ Distress inks/ Mini Mister/ pop dots

Hi Karen, thank you for your sweet comments on my blog, which brought me to your site where WOW! Stunning cards! Your watercolour here is gorgeous - something I'd love to try (don't know where/how to start). Your outstanding creations have inspired me immensely. One of these days...So happy to have "met" you (and I live just 'down the road' in Alberta!). Have a fantastic Saturday!

This card is absolutely beautiful. The watercolor technique with those florals is absolutely perfect, and I love them paired with that crisp black sentiment.
