HLS April Watercolour Challenge

Hello April! Well, this year is already flying by. I really can't believe it. The best thing about this month is that I will be getting a visit from my Mum! Yay!!!

The NEXT best thing is that our new challenges start over at Happy Little Stampers.

First up is our Watercolour Challenge -

You are going to love this one - I did! 

Here is my card -

You may have seen a card I made a couple of days ago using this new die? It is the Split Chevron Cover Up die. This time, I used the solid chevrons to create Inlaid die cuts.

I first started by using my Zig pens (yep, I was getting 'Ziggy with it') and just scribbled colour one under the other and went over them with my water pen. I ran that piece through my big shot using the cover die. I then die cut it again using white cardstock. I fiddled around a bit getting the pieces where I wanted them. I was going for a fairly random look.

I used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment in Versafine black ink and then heat embossed it with clear powder. The sentiment is from the HLS Rainy Days set.

Once finished, I went over the coloured panels with my WOS pen. I really feel this brings out the watercolours created with the Zigs. 

Here is a close up of the shimmer.

So that's me done for today! I hope to see you over at our Watercolour challenge - it is VERY popular!! Just goes to show how many of you love to watercolour :)
