Watercolor Rainbow — FMS177

We have another great sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  Our super talented friend from New Zealand, Karren Johnson, is our hostess this week.  Look at what she has for us:

I’ve been itching to do a little watercoloring lately, so I thought I’d try something different for me.  I made a watercolor resist background.  I embossed some watercolor paper with white Stampin’ Emboss Powder using a cool stamp from the Boutique Borders stamp set.  I love how easy it is to line up this stamp set and add row upon row with the photopolymer stamps — no Stamp-a-ma-jig needed.

Rainbow of WatercolorsI used a paintbrush and a set of watercolor paints to color the background.  Even though I chose most of the brightest colors in the set, this card turned out so soft and muted once it dried.  This is a different look for me, but I kinda like it.

The sentiment is from a Sale-a-Bration set called Simply Wonderful.

Rainbow of Watercolors Close UpWe’d love to have you join us in this challenge.  You can check out what the design team made over at the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. You “kinda like it”? Oh my gosh, Amy, it’s amazing! I love your choice of colors from one to the next, and I love the soft way it looks and shows the emboss resist. Gorgeous!
