Watercolour split

As you can see I am still on the watercolor kick.  I know some might think the blurring and blending is a little over done here but I like the way some of the petals and leaves float away into nothing.  To create this effect I inked up the stamp with Stampin’ Up markers and sponged the watercolor paper all over before stamping.  Then I stepped back and watched the magic.  Where the ink pooled in an unattractive way I soaked it up with paper towel.

Finishing the card was harder than creating the image.   I started by making rough edges around the image but then cut them off again.  I didn’t really want to stick any panels over the image but wanted to break up the layout a little so splitting it  seemed to be the only solution.  (well the only one that came to me)  I think this works because the focus moves from one flower over to the two flowers.

    Heather, I just LOVE this card! The split looks terrific, the effect lots of fun and the colour combo co-incidentally one I’ve been thinking of using myself! TFS
