This week we have a beautiful colour challenge to work with:

July 14 - Happy Stampers Color Challenge

So I decided to watercolour with the colors and created this card:

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks:

  • I used the Watercolor Wash background stamp, sponged on some Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo ink, spritzed it with a little water before laying down a piece of watercolor paper.
  • While letting the first piece dry, I stamped the glads on another piece of watercolour paper and used the ink pad lids and my aqua painter to colour them.
  • I fussy cut them out so I could pop them up on the card.
  • Back to the watercolor background, when it was dry, I flicked my Gold Wink of Stella across the watercolour for some “background noise”.
  • I attached the watercolor piece to a Thick Whisper White card base with Multipurpose Glue before adding a little piece of the Pop of Pink Washi Tape at the top and the bottom
  • I stamped the sentiment – albeit a little crooked, haha….
  • Then I used Dimensionals to attach my flower.
  • My embellishments are 3 gold sequins.

Now it’s time to go and see what the rest of the Happy Stampers Designers have come up with for this week’s challenge.
