Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and have had a good weekend. The weather is forecast to be lovely which is a huge bonus as today is our 29th Anniversary, we have no plans really, due to circumstances but we hope to go out for something to eat later. The girls have kindly offered to take us and pick us up, which we are very grateful for. I cannot begin to tell you how blessed I feel and have felt every day of those 29 years, Paul as most of you know is the kindest most caring husband any girl could wish for, he is my true Soulmate 😍🥰❤
I used the 'Sepia Watercolour' technique, although I used purple tones instead of brown.
I took a 4 1/4 × 5 1/2 piece of watercolour card, used a waterbrush to coat the piece of card in water, I then added a little water to some Elegant Eggplant (purple) ink and 'washed' it across the paper, having the water on the card helped the colour disperse easier.
You can dry the card and add another layer if you like i then stamped the flowers in Versafine Clair ink and dried it, I went back to the Purple ink to colour in the flowers, adding colour to the centre and washing it out up the petals, adding more ink if necessary. After I was pleased with the colour I dried the whole piece. The next step was to get some bleach and a fine paintbrush and painted around the very tips of the petals, this bleaches the colour out and adds almost a highlight to the edges, lifting them from the background.
I then used Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to add some texture to the background, stamping in the purple ink and versamark ink and white embossing powder. I even used some sentiment/word stamps to add interest too.
To finish the card I inked around the card and lastly added some little white dots with a Posca pen.
I am looking forward to seeing your cards.
Have a lovely day my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all of you,
