Muse 12: Watercolour Flowers
This week's Muse card is designed by Therese Calvird. I love it! Instantly I was drawn to the watercolour look of the flower and the large bold sentiment. I was over at Jill Foster's blog and she does some amazing things with watercolouring. I used one of the techniques she demonstrated with Distress Markers. It is really simple. I coloured the flowers with spiced orange, mustard seed and worn lipstick; on the leaves I used pine needles and crushed olive. Then I spritzed with water and sat back while the colours blended. Heat and fussy cut. I wanted them to have a little more sparkle, so I added some rock candy distress stickles to it. The background leaves are stamped with a Hero Arts shadow ink and the sentiment with Ranger jet black Archival. I love the way it turned out. Thanks Therese for the wonderful inspiration and thanks to everyone else for stopping by!
