RI Designer’s Choice Challenge - Miriam

 

SONY DSC

Hello everyone~

Thank God! We finally had rain!!! It’s been sooooooo dry and I almost could hear the praise from the plants & trees, lol!

I made this card for today’s Designer Choice Challenge from Repeat Impressions. It’s Miriam’s turn to host and she is challenging us water coloring :) You will have two weeks (by July 5th) to enter your project. When you finish your project, make sure you link it to the DCC post at RI blog where the inlinkz are located so that you will have a chance to win the RI gift certificate! For more information about the DCC, please visit The House That Stamps Built (RI blog). Can’t wait your creation!

I stamped Bird & Blossoms (1321-M) on the watercolor paper and colored with some dye ink using watercolor brush. Then the colored image was placed on the lattice frame. I used Happy Everything (3104-F) for the sentiment. To finish off, I dressed the card with the ribbon and rhinestones.

 

 

The colors were inspired from CR84FN Color Challenge 32 (CR84FN32).

My word, you knocked this one out of the park! Fabulous job, Maki! You are water-colorer extraordinaire! I almost used this same image but wasn't happy with how it turned out and now that I see yours I am really glad I didn't use it!
