I'm back quickly today with a card for The Colour Throwdown. I was initially inspired by this gorgeous card by Therese of Lost in Paper. I didn't end up with quite the same loose watercolor look though. I used the backside of the stamps inked and spritzed with water for the watercolor feel and then wasn't thrilled with it so I overstamped the flowers and leaves with the lined images. Quite a different look in the end but it's fun to see where inspiration leads you. :)
Cardstock: (Watercolour) Ranger, (Mossy Made) Stampin' Up
Stamps: (Flowers from Our Friendship Grows) Lawn Fawn, (Sentiment from Many Thanks) Altenew
Ink: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks) Ranger
Love the spritzing. This looks gorgeous!
Bright, sunny and delicious, Jen ... love how you've blinged the flower centres ... and the speckling is gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)
Wow this is a different look for your cards but I love it!
So pretty! Love the look of the pretty blooms. Thanks for joining us at The Color Throwdown!
So so beautiful Jen, great idea to restamp the images over top of the watercolour background, it's perfect! Thanks too for the sweet comment about my card x
Terrific card Jen!!
Gorgeous sunflowers, Jen. The over stamping worked perfectly. PS: The link to Therese's card isn't correct.
I love the way your overstamping worked out!! Bright and sunny! Just perfect, Jen!
These flowers are so pretty, and I am admiring the courage you had to do all that restamping and splattering. Worked out perfectly.
Lovely watercolor florals! So glad you were able to play along with us at Color Throwdown!
