Watercoloured florals

I’ve been doing some more watercolour with a limited colour palette. I am hosting a colour challenge with the Foiled Fox until the end of the month so I’ve been working with three colours whenever I get the chance. I’d love to see any three colour cards you’ve made added to our challenge link up. The card above was painted with only three colours, picked raspberry, fossilized amber and evergreen bough. The orange tones are a mix of pink and yellow, the blue/green leaves are evergreen bough, the other leaves are a mix of evergreen bough and fossilized amber.

I stamped PB ‘flower cascade’ in antique linen ink which is perfect for no-line watercolour. After I had finished the painting I splattered some antique linen oxide and some metallic green paint over the panel. I completed the card with some kraft and shimmer gold cardstock and added a gold embossed sentiment.

I want to let you know that The Foiled Fox is having a sale all weekend so if you are wanting to do a little arty crafty shopping pop on over there.

My second card is also a three colour image painted with bundled sage, worn lipstick and antique linen inks. I stamped the image in antique linen ink then smooshed the distress ink on my glass mat so I could dilute and paint with it. I painted one petal at a time so I could blend dark to light and let it dry before painting an adjacent petal.

Have a great weekend and maybe try a colour trio card!

Party with Penny blog hop

I am partying with Penny today along with a bunch of Penny’s friends. Yes, Penny Black has a blog hop showcasing the recent ‘Timeless’ release. All the new products are available in the Penny Black online store.
You should have arrived here from Marion Vagg’s blog . If you want to start the hop from the beginning, you can go to the Penny Black blog for a complete list of all of the blog hop participants.

I chose the pretty ‘Harmony‘ stamp for my card and stamped it twice on hot pressed watercolour paper in versamark ink. I embossed in platinum powder and even remembered to do the sentiment from the new ‘sentiments‘ set at the same time! I painted all the flowers with brusho watercolour paint powders, violet, ost blue and emerald green.

And it wouldn’t be a party without a giveaway; right?
