Good morning! I'm super excited this morning to be hopping with the Winnie and Walter Design Team and a few super guest stars to celebrate World Card Making Day! You should have arrived here from Amy Kolling - make sure and head over to the Winnie and Walter blog to start at the beginning if you just happened along.
You are going to want to leave comments at every stop along the hop - there will be 5 winners of $25 gift certificates drawn from comments left along the hop. There will also be lots of different challenges on the Winnie and Walter blog with BIG PRIZES as well!
Here is my card to share today - I made an attempt at no-line watercoloring, and considering how little I've done it, I'm pretty thrilled with how it came out!
I stamped the large poinsettia from In Bloom: Elsa's Florals using Simon Says Stamp Barely Beige dye ink, then watercolored in with Daniel Smith watercolors. This ink made it easy, because it seemed to grab the color and add the detail right where the stamped line image was. YAY! I then stamped some evergreen boughs from the same set with distress ink to fit the watercolor feel, and added some splatters with the same distress ink by mixing it with some water to flick on. I added a sentiment from Merry and Bright with Evelin T. Designs, and a few of the snowflakes from that set as well - stamped off once with black ink for a softer effect. I die cut the entire panel using Essentials: Katharine Cutaways and distressed the edges before mounting on a kraft cardbase. Finished off by adding Glossy Accents to the center of the flower and snowflakes and sprinkling on some crushed glass glitter for some sparkle!
Your next stop along the hop is Miriam Prantner - have a wonderful time hopping, and Happy World Card Making Day!!!
