Navy, Coral & White

While I was having fun in my craft room yesterday afternoon I played around some more with watercoloring and made this card:


I used an Ellen Hutson stamp set – Bohemian Garden I embossed it in gold and then put a mask over it and sponged a Night of Navy circle around the flower! To paint the flower, I used a Cameo Coral ink refill and a water brush! For the center of the flower I added some pearls from an old Doodlebug collection called Flower Box. A sentiment was added from a Stampin’ Up! set called  Whimsical Words! It says happiness Always!!

I want to link this card up to these 3 places:

I am playing along with ‘Team Hayley’ – I did not have Calypso Coral but I did have Cameo Coral (an older SU! color) so I used that – I hope that is acceptable!!

I went straight across the middle with Pearls, Sentiment and Flowers!

My Top Tip is to use the negative of diecuts and punches to create shading around your image!! Just make sure to mask your image within it to create the look I have on my card above!
