May Sunshine & Joy fill your life

addicted to stamps

Hi all, I’m back today to share a card I made for our latest challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More where the theme is CAS and I hope you’ll join us with your clean and simple cards. I had so much pleasure making this card as I could combine 2 of my favourite items, flowers and watercolours.

I used the beautiful marigold from Stamplorations called French Marigold, which I first stamped with  Altenew’s Lavender Fields ink and coloured in with my watercolours, using mainly Red Violet and Cinereous Blue from Sennelier, which I treated myself, while working in France last month. The centre of the flower was coloured with my Zig clean color real brush & the stem with one of my favourite watercolours, Winsor and Newton’s Quinocridone Gold. This colour starts of as a beautiful goldish brown and becomes yellow when diluted with more water!

I stamped the sentiment from Penny Black with Versafine Vintage Sepia and flicked some yellow paint onto the card. To finish, I went over the whole flower with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to make it it shine and then matted this panel onto a gold card base.
