Hello All,

For today I am playing along with CAS Watercolour Challenge and The Flower Challenge. Here is my card for today, enjoy!!

Simple watercolor background with all the colors of Spring.
This cluster of flowers was heat embossed in white.
I then sponged a darker color around the flowers to allow them to pop a bit more.

I was horrified to see that after I stamped the sentiment there
was something wrong. So carefully with a very fine tip pen, I traced over the sentiment
and adding thicker lines in places. It gives this sentiment stamp a whole new look.

 Challenges Entered:
CAS Watercolour: March2017- Spring
The Flower Challenge: #6- Anything Goes

Well, thank you so much for dropping in to spend time with me. I really enjoyed this project. A lot of fun to create! I will be back, so until then take care and happy stamping everyone!!

All the best,

Love the flow of your watercoloured background, Shawna. So pretty with those white embossed flowers. Adding just a little sponging around the flowers really makes them pop. Great save on the sentiment too! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

I love the gorgeous water color wash background, this is something I struggle with, I always end up with a muddy mess.
But you did an amazing job with all those lovely colors that make your embossed flowers really stand out.
I'm so happy you were able to save your card after you stamped the sentiment.
Thank you for sharing with THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, I hope you play again next time.
