LIM Guest Designer

Happy Saturday everyone! 

Today is the start of a brand new challenge over at Less Is More and I am delighted to be their Guest Designer! Also, Happy Little Stampers is sponsoring so don't forget to play along for the chance to win a $15 gift certficate to the shop :)

The theme at LIM for this challenge is


I decided to go with colours that were always 'never to be seen' together. Blue and Green!

Here is my card -

I cut a panel of watercolour paper using a stiched die. I 'Got Ziggy With It' and started laying down colour using Cobalt Blue and Light Green Zigs. I used a waterbrush to move the colour around. I dried it between layers with my heat gun. 

I stamped my flower and leaves from the HLS Doodled Flowers set onto watercolour paper using Archival ink. I heat set the ink so it wouldn't bleed once I started to add the colour and water. I fussy cut them out ready to assemble onto my card. Once the colour was dry, I went over them with clear wink of stella to add some pretty sparkle.

I stamped the sentiment from the HLS Mix Mash set onto a strip of white cardstock. I used glue to assemble most of the card - I also used fun foam behind my watercolour panel to add dimension. The raindrops are from PTI.

Voila - done!

Here are the sets that I used to make this card


Thanks for popping in today and I hope to see you over at the challenge blog!

By the way, check out the new look for Less Is More! Well done girls!
