I am a big fan of winter, especially the snow part, but today it is just dreary, dreary, dreary! I decided my craft room was the best place to be and decided to play in the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoaststampers; Ann aka Dockside is featured this week. I chose a cas card with a wreath and a grid pattern to case, but in the process, created quite the mess!
I wanted to do a water color wash background; I chose colors from Colour Q.
I brushed on a pinky orange color from my Peerless water colors; then while the background was still wet, I stamped on some Razzleberry ink with the SU Off the Grid image. This is where the mess occurred!
I gave up that idea pretty quick and moved on to stamping my wreath with a little image from Flourishes Life Love Lemon set. I decided to use the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches~
Then I discovered the wonderully springy inspiration photo at The Card Concept and since it is there 1 year anniversary, I had to play along with my former team! Happy Anniversary Card Concept! The inspiration brought me back to pink'y', purple'y' colors so I used my mess of a watercolor paper and punched flowers from it.
It also seems appropriate to link up to 613 Avenue Create for their 2 year anniversary. This card uses water coloring and handmade flowers. Happy Anniversary to 613 Avenue Create!
I added layers with a Crumb Cake frame cut with Spellbinders and a Gelly Roll Clear Star Pen. The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs.
Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful week!
