Just Add Water

Just Add Water Heather Telford

I can’t believe how long it has taken me  to play along with Karen’s ‘Just Add Water challenge’ at One Layer Simplicity. Considering how often I use watercolour these days I should have several cards linked by now! Seems they have all been more than one layer lately.

Using watercolour paper as my card base I taped off a panel in the centre of the card front. I pulled out a stamp I hadn’t tried before, ‘Noble’ from the PB Happy Everything release, inked it with Memento markers and spritzed it with water. I added a few highlights to the leaves, a three sided border with a watercolour pencil and flicked a little extra colour around also. I decided the sentiment could be all watery too so inked it with two greens, spritzed it and stamped.

If you haven’t already played along head over to One Layer Simplicity now; you still have a week to get involved.

    Lovely water color! I love how you added the frame on 3 sides and water flicking on the other side; it gives a very painterly effect!

    It doesn’t matter how long it took you to create this card, it became a gorgeous flowercard in the end. That’s what matters in the end.
