Hello! Well, haven't I been having fun with my new stamp set (Doodled Flowers) from Happy Little Stampers!
I wanted to combine stamping and watercolouring for my card today. I was having so much fun that I even made a second card :)
Here is my first one -
(I have CASED a card that I received for my birthday last year from the gorgeous Sarah Platt. You can see her card HERE. I loved it the moment I opened the envelope.)
I love the brightness of this card. I used yellow and orange brushos to create my background. I simply misted a small amount of water onto my paper and sprinkled the yellow brushos first. A little bit more water to move it around and then some orange brushos. A little more yellow at the top and it was done.
When it was completely dry, I embossed the flowers and leaves and masked while I stamped. I also embossed the sentiment. The black enamel dots were the finishing touch.
Thank you Sarah for your inspiration!

Easter and/or Spring with the optional technique twist of masking (Spring and Masking)
Here is my next card -
I loved making this card. I embossed my flowers and leaves onto watercolour paper and grabbed some good old fashioned watercolour pencils and a water brush and added the colour.
The background was created with broken china distress ink swiped onto my craft mat and the ink picked up with my water brush.
I hadn't really planned on this design when I started but once I had everything fussy cut out, I decided to draw some stems and pop everything up with foam squares.
