WWC274 – Dawn\’s Challenge: Anything Goes with a Feminine Twist

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. 
My Process:
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.  

Supplies:
Altenew Garden Grow stamp set
\”Hi\” sentiment from Altenew Pinstripes background die
Watercolor Paper
Watercolors:  sap green, turquoise, blue, olive, yellow and orange
Versafine Ink
Embossing Powder
Heat Gun
Brushes

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!
