Hello friends! I'm sorry I haven't been around this week, just been busy with the everyday things of life. Oh I had been working on some watercolor cards that I'll share soon. :)
Over at My Creative Time it's Trending Now! Today it's all about the BIG BOLD STRIPES, DOTS, and CHEVRONS! They are so HOT right now and I LOVE THEM!!! I really wanted my card to bright, bold, yet feminine.
It's somewhat hard to see in the picture, but the yellow dots are much brighter in person. The first thing I did was white heat emboss the flowers on watercolor paper. Then I used distress ink to watercolor the flowers. After they were dry I fussy cut them, added wink of stella and glossy accents. I love adding the glossy accents to the petals and leaves to look like morning dew.
For the frame, stamped the bold black chevrons, Now I wish I had made them closer together or added the dotted chevron in between. Funny I was going back and forth of whether to add it or not, but was so afraid I would mess it up, that I left it off. No guts, no glory...lol!
