I so wanted to do a watercolour card or two for a few challenges. But it hasn't worked
out that way. I got home from being away and just have time to do my second idea.
Using a stencil from Winnie and Walter with Distress Ink blending.
After adding the stencil on top of the card base I taped off a triangular area
and blended with a wee bit of blue and more green. Once I was happy with
the look I used my Gold Gel pen and drew around the leaves leaving some areas
bare. When I took the stencil away I wasn't happy and I tried a number of
ideas. I didn't want to cut or layer but it needed something. I then decided to
attach the stencil again and without adding any ink to the foam tool I added
a few extra leaves in a very pale blend. Now I was happy.
Added the 'with sympathy' die cut with that fantastic adhesive sheet
on the back and a few clear drops ( I love those drops).
Finished in plenty of time for
I love Michelle Lupton's style. Have followed her
blog for years. So much inspiration and as you can see this
is why I wanted to do watercolour but I certainly felt the
inspiration for my card, the leaves, gold outline, freefall
look and the white area for the sentiment.
Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
