For today’s card I’ve been inspired by the Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink with a beautiful colour palette of Mint Macaron, Fresh Freesia and Starry Sky.

I went bold by blending Starry Sky on Basic White Cardstock for my matte layer. A wave and some dots were heat embossed in white to compliment the shell. I used my Stamparatus (our stamp positioning tool) to stamp the wave as I only wanted to stamp part of the image and it allowed me to re-stamp should I have needed to.

The shell was watercoloured with Fresh Freesia and Starry Sky. I inked up a Clear Block which acted as my palette. I find that this method gives me more control for watercolouring.

The leaves were coloured with Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends, providing a soft contrast against the bold background.

If you would like to get started with watercolouring, I’ve put together a pack that gets you the basics. It’s a great time to get started with July being World Watercolouring Month. This pack is customisable to suit your crafting needs. Click on the image to order and amend as required.
