Welcome to my combination challenge. What does that mean? It means that the project for this challenge will have a watercolour background with a silhouette in the foreground.
I had such fun with this challenge. For my background I used watercolour paper and, using my Stampin' Spritzer, sprayed it generously with plain water. Then, using my aqua-painter and ink pads, I went to work doing a "patch-work" of colours. I kept the colours subtle. That's something one can easily manage with watercolours: keeping them subtle or making a very colourful, bold statement. I love the way the colours blend into each other where they meet, too. While you can exert some control on the results, there are always some unknowns with watercolouring this way. That's what makes it exciting.
For my silhouette, I used the Serene Silhouettes stamp set. The images have such realism and are wonderful against a watercolour background. For my sentiment, I turned to the Blooming With Kindness stamp set and used my Hexagon punch. A little vellum butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set, stamped in black, and some black Candy Dots and the card was done.
I hope you'll join us for the Watercooler Challenge and link up your own creation for us to enjoy.
I've also entered my card in the Paper Players Challenge.
