Winnie and Walter colour challenge take 2

Winnie and Walter

Hi, thanks for visiting me today.

As I explained yesterday every month I really look forward to seeing what the colour combo is on the Winnie and Walter blog. I always find that it pushes me outside of my comfort zone, and this month is no exception. Here is the colour combo, where we encouraged to use at least three colours.

Here is my second entry:

I ink smooshed zig watercolours onto Bockingford Watercolor card, white heat embossed the gorgeous flower from Winnie and Walter Addies Garden, and die cut the scallop rectangle also by W&W which helped flatten any warping. The sentiment is by Altenew.  Once it was all assembled I added some dark watercolour shadow to the flowers to make them pop a bit more, and some white Nuevo drops.

Hey everyone, sorry I’ve been MIA lately. I had a change of circumstances and started back at work a few months ago which has required a lot of my concentration (except when I’m not looking after my two-year-old of course)!

Every month I really look forward to seeing what the colour combo is on the Winnie and Walter blog. I always find that it pushes me outside of my comfort zone, and this month is no exception. Here is the colour combo, where we encouraged to use at least three colours.

Hope you like my first attempt. I used a Winnie and walter creative screening called leaf effect to stencil the background, the  scallop rectangle is also by W and W as it is a gorgeous daffodil flower which is from the Addies garden stamp set.  The heat embossed sentiment is by Altenew.

 Hi everyone

Inspiration for today’s card comes from a sketch for this months seven hills grass challenge. I used a bit of artistic license and exchanged the rectangle pieces for these lovely flourishes by my favourite things. For the background I used a beautiful stencil by Winnie and Walter called leaf effect and ink blended two of my new Altenew inks – blush and rouge.

I added some  links of grey with Copic 03 onto the stencilled leaves and then added a gorgeous flower from Winnie and Walter Addies Garden.  I used copic markers to add quick colouring and 3D foam mounted into.  To finish I used my Mini Misti and a lovely sentiment from Simon Says Stamp

Hey everyone

At the moment AAA cards and Less is More have a joint challenge to create one layer card on a coloured card base. This kind of card is totally outside my comfort zone, I find it difficult not to fuss.  I hope a couple of sequins still make it one layer!

Hey everyone,

Today’s card really pushed me outside of my comfort zone. I watercoloured some roses freehand in pretty pink tones using my gansai tambi paints.

Once dried I used the pretty scallop rectangle  by Winnie and Walter which really helped to smooth out some of the warping on the watercolour paper. The sentiment is one of my go to  happy anniversary sentiments by Mama Elephant.   I had an accident with my enamel dots (oops) so had to add loads to cover up and try and make the piece look balanced.
