Hello and welcome to our Colour Combo Blog Hop. I’m Rochelle Laird-Smith and I live in Melbourne, Australia. If it is your first time visiting my blog, thank you for stopping by. I really hope you enjoy your time here and visit often. To all my regular subscribers, thank you for reading and interacting with me.
This was another colour combination I wouldn’t have really put together but that’s the idea of a challenge, right? I’m really glad for it because it stretches me to think outside the square.
I took to one of my favourite techniques for this card – watercolouring, together with the Forever Fern bundle. You can get this bundle for free during the month of June. Find out the details at the end of this post.
I started by stamping the larger leaves in Sahara Sand, stamped off. Then I watercoloured these in with my Water Painter in Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo. It’s best to start light and then increase the intensity of colour. I kept my brush tip just damp so I could create the lines on the leaves.
To create the Flirty Flamingo leaves, I spritzed the Shimmery White cardstock with water. Then I inked the stamp with Flirty Flamingo and stamped on the wet cardstock. This gives a different water coloured look to the previous leaf.
I laid this all on a circle embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp and Well Written dies. I have just purchased these. It is a 2 set stamp set so you get a lot of sentiments. Combine it with the die cuts, like I have and you can get several combinations.
