Because I don't colour with Copics, I tend to buy solid stamps over outline ones. So, I didn't have a lot of options for making projects for this watercolouring challenge. But, as I flipped through my stamp sets, the large tree image in Love & Marriage got me wondering if I could watercolour with it.
Now, I have to say that I was very much inspired by this sneak peek that Nichole posted earlier this week on her blog.
I really liked the tree and loved the little apple added to it. I wondered if I could do something similar with the tree image from Love & Marriage..... and did I have a little apple stamp? Oh, yes, I did, in Tag It's #6. Perfect!
So, here's my card:
We were watching the Closing Ceremonies this afternoon for the Olympics and they played this commercial, which always makes me tear up. I decided that I needed to scrapbook the quote at the end of it, so I chose a photo from Mother's Day last year and made this layout:
I used PTI cardstock (rustic cream), twine and dies (script alphabet). I also used Crate Paper patterned paper, chipboard and fabric brad.
Here's a close-up of my journaling:
For my flower, I stamped it twice with a Basic Grey Hero Arts stamp and Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I used PTI Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst and Raspberry Fizz inks to watercolour it. I trimmed them out, one with the full image and the other with just the centre. I layered them and added the brad in the middle. The leaves were stamped with a stamp from the same set and PTI New Leaf Ink.
Thanks for looking!
