I have seen many water colour cards around blog land and this prompted me to dig out my paints. I have always shyed away from using water colour paper in my card making but its good to try new things so I had a go and am quite pleased with resulting card.
I used a poppy stamps die delicate chrysanthemum and used it as a mask whilst literally dabbing on splodges of water colour paint from a fairly dry brush so the paint didn't run under the mask, as I was only holding it in place. I did 2 flowers turning the die cut for added interest. The die cut I used as the mask looked pretty with its two tone colour so with paint the stem green ready for use on a future project.
Once dry I took a white base card and stuck the water coloured paper to the bottom half of the card base cutting the top on a slight diagonal angle. I stamped and embossed a dark room anniversary stamp in versamark ink and powder embosed with moonglow venus violet blue powder keeping with the purple /blue tones.
I used some lilac ribbon to hand tie a small bow and added a length across the top of the diagonal before adding the bow with a glue dot.
I really like the finished card and am happy I tried and learnt something new.
