A card to share that's something a bit different for me. It uses some colours from this month's challenge at Make the Day Special Stamp Store and also fits the WOW! Embossing Powders Spring themed challenge.
I used the aqua, purple and yellow from the first swatch and tried to conquer my fear of watercolours! And for the first time ever managed to produce a result that excited me and I actually like!
I started by stamping the sun and balloons in yellow, then overstamped
with Versamark before heat embossing with WOW! sparkling snow glitter.
Next I put the three ink colours onto an acryllic block, spritzed with
water and placed the card on top. Once this was dry I flicked some very
watered down purple ink from a brush to get some splatters
When this was all dry I added some more purple round the edges and a little purple and yellow to the embossed stamps using my inkylicious brushes. Finally I stamped the balloon strings, sprinkled some sequins and added a sentiment.
Stamps: Lawn Fawn, Hellp Sunshine - available at Make The Day Special

Well I really feel I've achieved something today and might just be changing my mind about watercolours! I'd be interested to hear how you get along with watercolours - do you love, tolerate or hate them?
Thanks for your visit and time today. And keep crafting!
