Watercolor Blog Hop – take 1

Just a friendly reminder – I have a GIVEAWAY going on HERE until June 10th, 2015

You know, I just have to say that sometimes I have to pull myself away and find a way to center so that I can create!!

I finally got a chance to do just that – here is what I created:


I used a stamp set – Bohemian Garden from Ellen Hutson – to stamp a side border of flowers. I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with gold powder!! There was masking involved – I then watercolored my flowers using my new Zig clean color real brush markers and a Zig water pen!! So much fun – love doing this!! Embossed also in gold a SU! sentiment and added a trio of sequins!!!

I am linking my card up to:

    Ohhhhh…. this is so sweet! It’s probably one of my favorite creations you’ve ever done, I think! The panel of color against that stark white really makes those flowers POP and I love the little accents you added to the centers of them. LOVE!!

    Gorgeous trail of flowers, such a pretty card! I also am remiss in letter you know I got your birthday card. THANK YOU!!!! I was out in CA all last week, so have been busy working to dig out and get back on track this week and on top of all that end of school year stuff is happening…just one more week of that! Anyway, I really do appreciate it and all your sweet comments too!

    Holy Kamoly…. this card is so gorgeous! Thank you for the link to the actually stamp you used from Ellen Hutson. I have seen that stamp before but you are the only one I have seen do it justice. Your card could not be more perfect. hugs, :)

    Vibrant, vivid and oh so beautiful, Taunya! Those flowers truly are jaw-dropping gorgeous! Even though I’m dreadful with water-colouring, I ‘succumbed’ to “peer pressure” (which, it appears, I readily give in to) and ordered a 12 set of these markers. I’m awaiting their arrival…hope they come soon and that they’re as easy to work with as Jennifer McGuire showed. Your use of them here really amps up my excitement! Stunning, my friend!
