Hello and welcome! We are making \”feminine\” cards this week at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge Website and Dawn is our hostess.
I\’ve been admiring \”grid\” cards online and decided I wanted to make a watercolor botanical version.
I decided to make an oversized A6 card since there is so much going on with the layout. I started by sketching six 1 1/4\” by 1 1/2\” rectangles on a watercolor panel. I added clean water into the first rectangle and then dropped in sap green and turquoise and let them blend for this wet on wet technique. I repeated this process for each rectangle, varying the color combinations as I went. The images were heat embossed for a vibrant silhouette. I backed the panel with craft foam and popped on an A6 card base made from watercolor cardstock.
I really like the framed silhouette look.

I am also playing along with:
The Inspired Challenge: All the Details I was inspired by the grid layout and floral/botanical paper flowers.
Addicted to Stamps: Make Your Mark Challenge I made my mark with Watercolors.
Time Out \”Free\” Challenge I took \”time out\” to create this garden card. My husband and I have afternoon lattes in the garden every afternoon and that is where we enjoy spending our \”free\” time.
Hand Stamped Sentiments: #340 Challenge I was inspired by the squares.
I am so pleased that you stopped by!
