Doing A Spot of Watercolouring

Hello Crafty Friends!

I felt like playing today in a clearing my mind sort of way hence I got out my watercolours and the Originally Organic set by Uniko. I wanted to create a clan and simple card, softly watercoloured and cheerful ... here it is ...

I simply stamped my image in black Archival and off I went ... I love to allow the watercolours to run into each other and hazily blend around the leaves for a really soft look. It does work even without using watercolour paper/card, all you need is a sturdy non-coated card stock to allow your imagination take flight ... I added some splatters for an artsy look, stamped my sentiment and layered on a grey base card to further enhance the soft look I was after.

I am entering my card at:
CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge #201 Sketch 
CASology - week #225, cue card 'soft'
Addicted To Stamps And More - Anything Goes

My second card for today is another CAS card, using Background Builders: Round In Circles by Uniko and Holiday Sketches: Christmas Candles by STAMPlorations for the sentiment it is ...

I am entering this card at:
Uniko - Christmas 
Time Out - Christmas, optional twist glitter or shimmer which I didn't use

That's it from me for today. I shall be back soon.

Have a lovely weekend!
