You can use any medium to create your projects: paints, inks, pencils, pens, stains, etc., as long as you keep to the colours from the colour swatch. You don't have to use Chocolate Baroque stamps to play along but if you do you will be entered into a random draw to win £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps. All participants will have a chance to be on the Design Team's Top Three list and proudly display winner's badge on their blog.
This card was made in a hurry. It took me under an hour ... 53 minutes, to be precise. Seriously! That's what I like about watercoloring. When you've got awesome stamps to start with, that's half the work done. Truth be told, the stitching took me longer to do. The key is NOT to over think anything, limit the materials used and keep it simple. And the result is this:
Harebell Butterfly A5 stamp sheet. I adhered a piece of violet CS randomly stamped with little leaves from the Butterfly Dreams A4 stamp sheet and VersaMagic Cloud White ink onto the card base.
To save time, I did not even mask the image before painting the background. You can see how that turned out in the photo below! :) I added Liquid Pearls in an attempt to "add texture and interest" - although I have no idea what that phrase really means!

There you have it - a very quick card from me. I've come to learn that water colouring is very forgiving. You can hide a multitude of mistakes by pretending it is some obscure technique and that every (mis)stroke is a deliberate and considered action. I <HEART> watercolours!
Challenge #9 will close at 12.00 p.m. (UK) on Tuesday 22nd April 2015, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 29th April 2015. I hope you'll play along and run the risk of winning £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps.
