"A cat sleeps fat, yet walks thin."
I'm here with a pretty card I made for a technique challenge at Inspired by Stamping: Watercoloring with Tombow Markers. I don't have any Tombow markers....but I do have a small set of Distress markers, so I used them instead. I often use watercolor techniques with my cards, but I really hadn't ever tried it like I saw in Joanna's awesome video.
I used the lovely hydrangea image from the Inspired by Stamping - Graceful Hydrangea set, a prize I chose from IBS. (THANKS, Joanna!!!) I stamped it with Versamark on watercolor paper and heat embossed it with Wow! Bright Opaque White embossing powder. I used my little set of Distress markers to color it using Joanna's technique. I really love how the flowers turned out, but I need to practice more with my sky background.
I stamped the word Hydrangea from the set with Memento - Tuxedo Black. Isn't that font with the flourish absolutely gorgeous???? I kept the card very simple to showcase the flower by matting it with blue and then putting it on a pink card base.
I am entering this card in the Scrappin Great Deals Mood Board challenge. I found their photos very inspiring. I love the pastel pinks and used them in my card.
Hope you enjoyed my card. Be sure to watch the IBS video if you have any questions about the process. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
