IALT18 - Many Thanks


Are you tired of my watercolouring yet? It's starting to feel more comfortable and a little less experimental, although I used Zigs rather than KGT (actually, I did use KGT for the wash but not to colour the flowers) for this one. It's for the latest Inspired by All the Little Things challenge:



Same technique as this card - grey-ish wash laid down before heat embossing and watercolouring, pulling some of the colour outside of the image, to create a 'glow'.

I used:
-Altenew Botanical Garden
-Essentials by Ellen Many Thanks
-MFT Pierced Circle die
-Zig Clean Colour Markers
-Pretty Pink Posh Sequins


ETA: This card was chosen as a winner! What an honour!

As beautifully as you watercolor, I don't think I'll ever tire of seeing how you use them. The entire design is amazing. You've captured this inspiration photo perfectly; from the navy blue, to the bouquet shaped circle to those really lovely colors. What a great die by EH, too. Love this card! Bev

You're on fire girl! Another stunning creation! I was so surprised to read that you laid down the grey wash BEFORE embossing & coloring! You are so dang clever...and I'm so glad that you share your cleverness with those of us who are less likely to think of these ideas!
