This month it's Anything Goes for the HLS Watercolour Challenge but you may like to play along with our optional twist of sequins.
I'm so excited to be part of the Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge Design Team. As you all know, I love watercolouring and so I'm looking forward to pushing the limits for this challenge.
For my image I went slightly oversized and wound up with a 4 1/2" x 6 1/4" card. But bigger is better, right? My base is white followed by a layer of Pacific Point. My image is stamped on a piece of Mixed Media paper and heat embossed using white embossing powder. After that I went a bit wild with my new Brusho watercolour crystals. What fun they are! Truly, you always wind up with something a bit different since each colour is made up of many different coloured crystals. For this gorgeous Penny Black image I used Scarlet and Ultramarine. Instead of wetting my image first, I tapped a few crystals onto the image and then sprayed it with water. Lightly. I didn't want the red spreading everywhere, after all. Around the image, I used the blue and added a few red crystals to the mix.
When it came time for my sentiment, I doubled up. I used one at the top left and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. For the second sentiment, I heat embossed it using copper embossing powder. Finally I added a few sequins and my card was done.
