Watercolour Fun

Isn't it exciting when you find a new challenge blog?  Even more so when you know it is a Stampin' Up! one too!  That is how I felt when I found Around the World challenge, I like it too because it has a design team from around the world, so you don't just get a style of what is trending in one country.

I have been enjoying a play with some more of my new sneak peek products, this time from the Occasions Catalogue. The whole card was really inspired by the DSP Watercolour Wonder I love the random splotches of colour on the background DSP and so decided to really give my flowers a watercolour feel not really caring if I coloured outside the lines, or if it looked too perfect.  I then dropped splotches of water coloured with ink onto my stamped image to give smaller versions of the background blotches.  Heavy handed sponging around the flag also gives it the rougher less perfect feel I was going with.  

At the end of the day, I am not sure if this is really my style but it was fun to do something a bit different.  Be honest, let me know what you think.

Happy Stamping
