Aren't these colours amazing??!! This is the inspiration for this months The Heart Desires challenge and I thought these colours would make a fun and pretty card to brighten up a friends day:
Bright and happy don't you think? Certainly makes me smile whenever I look at it. And then my smile falters slightly when I remember how long it took to water colour all these lines but it was so worth it!!!
I stamped and heat embossed the 'Zig Zag Background Stamp' from My Favourite Things in white on a piece of water colour CS. Then, using a mix of Zig Real Color Brush Markers and my Gansai Tambi paint set, I randomly coloured in the lines, trying not to go over the edges. Once it was dry I die-cut it using a waffle-edged die from Winnie and Walter 'Essentials: Audrey Cutaways'. And I also die-cut the 'Hugs' die from My Favourite Things.
I decided to keep the area behind the word die-cut white, so the panel was popped up on the card front with lots of foam tape. The sentiment (from MFT 'Somebunny') was heat embossed in white on a strip of black CS and put on foam tape. And I added some clear sequins from Neat and Tangled for a bit of sparkle.
I'm also going to link this to the Stamplorations CAS Card Challenge - May where their theme is 'Feminine Colours'.
As its been raining all day I have a pile of wet washing that needs to be hung up on the drying rack. Thank goodness we have a brilliant log fire and they will all be dry by the morning but its not very pleasant looking at wet underwear while watching tv. Oh how I wish we had a bigger house!!
