Just Add WaterPosted: March 17, 2014 Filed under: Noble, Watercolour | Tags: Fabriano Watercolour Paper, Penny Black stamps, Tsukineko Memento inks 16 Comments
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.

Oh wow this is absolutely gorgeous. So soft and pretty. I really like the extra colour you flicked around too.
beautifully done. Thanks for sharing!
Lovely card. I can’t wait to give it a try! Thank you.
Very pretty… I like the definition you added to the frame with the pencilled outline.
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!
Stunning, Heather! It looks like a real pressed flower! What a gorgeous stamp too
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.
Heather, it is again a beautiful card, I love the border. Thanks.
