Make it Monday - No Outline Watercolour

Okay, I'll be honest - I actually grimaced when I read the Make it Monday challenge - an all out gnashing teeth, banging head on table reaction.

Watercolouring alone is enough to make me hyperventilate....but having NO lines - come ON!

However, I persevered and came out with a somewhat presentable if not slightly bloppy creation -



In her video, Heather used Friends 'Til The End stamp set - which I stupidly sold last year - so I used my new set - Garden Grace - which I am in love with!

Using watercolor paper, I stamped the outline stamp with Soft Stone ink and then watercolored with Winter Wisteria and Royal Velvet inks for the flowers, and Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado and Simply Chartreuse for the leaves.  The inset is FREEHAND with Aquamist ink.....I'm awesome like that. 



The beautiful sentiment is included in the stamp set.  I mistakenly, but thankfully (make sense?) bought a whole passel of Royal Velvet Bitty Dot patterned paper, so I used that for the backing for my card - lucky me!

  13. WOW!! You rocked this!! I love how you colored in the flowers and then used blue for an outline. I didn't outline my image and am thinking I probably should have. Really lovely card.
