Happy Friday, peeps! Yay, the weekend is almost here! I have a fun group of stampers coming to play tomorrow, can't wait to see them! It's time for another As You See It challenge; check out this lovely color palette:
I have to admit that at first, I was stumped as to how to use these! I searched through my stamps to see what might jump out at me, and in the end, I am very happy with my result! Check it out:
Accented Blooms is such a pretty stamp set and I don't use it enough! It's a large enough image that you don't need much else to create an impressive card. I stamped the image in Stazon on Thick White cardstock and used the challenge color inks and an aquapainter to color it in; the thick cardstock accepts the watercolors pretty well and it doesn't bleed through:
I love to watercolor because even with only three colors, you can still get light and dark shades, depending on how much water is on your brush; more water creates lighter hues, less creates darker. I left the leaves blank so as not to detract from the pretty florals, then I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick on a scrap of white cardstock and used the matching punch, then popped it up on dimensionals. I did add a few little Powder Pink speckles and a couple of sequins from my stash for additional interest.
I hope you'll play along with us this week...these bright cheerful colors are sure to inspire you to get creative! Check out all the samples at the As You See It blog!
On Easter Sunday, our little children's choir sang for us....Wayne managed to capture this photo just as the boy in front put his head down, so you can see Cassidy's smiling face. She doesn't like to sing, let alone get up in front of a crowd, so I am surprised she is smiling!!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
