Bloom And Be Happy

i had so much fun painting stripes on my card for last week’s My Favorite Things sketch challenge that i used the same technique on this week’s submission for both their sketch challenge 263 and colour challenge.263

i mixed my own colours from twinkling H2Os to paint the stripes; unlike other watercolour paints, mixing colours with twinkling H2Os is a challenge because the shimmery mica added might interfere with the result you’re trying to create – but i love mixing colours anyway. after embossing the background, i sanded to reveal more white and painted the mat border.

the MFT die-namics blueprints 12 set was used for all the die cuts which were painted with twinkling H2O washes and i used a sentiment from the sunflower sweetheart stamp set.

i’m also submitting this to the simon says stamp ombre challenge.

thanks for popping by.

  1. This is a very pretty, cute card. Lovely use of the colours, and I like how the stripes are subtle and soft looking.

  2. I didn’t see this one. I love the soft and subtle ombree on your EF, Linda. It’s so warm and sweet. Love the flowers, too. Perfectly adorable. Hugs.
