I had the whole day yesterday time to do what ever I wanted. My husband spend the day with the kids and gave me time to myself. So, I am back today with a card that I made with a few challenges in mind and mainly inspired my Michelle from Amusing Michelle. If you haven't admired her work already, please go and visit her - she is truly amazing!
|This is my entry to the Card Concept #31, |
CASology - Blossom and Wplus9 Throwback Thursday Challenge #2.
This card was one of the winners at the Card Concept.
I've had this stamp set called Pretty Peonies by Wplus9 since last November. I've admired and adored Dawn's beautifully watercoloured peonies and watched her tutorial many times. Also Michelle is very very talented in whatever she does and she had made so many beautiful cards with this stamp set. Every time when I've seen her cards, I've tried to stamp, colour with Distress Inks, traditional watercolours, copics... But I was only able to make a huge mudy mess with it and even though I've heard that you should just make something that reminds you of a flower so that your brain can see it as a flower. Not even my husband couldn't see the flowers in those previous attempts of mine so it wasn't just me.. Michelle did this card for the CAS(E) this Sketch this week and gave me enthuasism to try again and this time I was determined to make this into a flower. And this time I am able to see the flowers and I am very very happy with the outcome - finally!
I used Dawn method but I changed it a little. After so many attempts I realized that I couldn't see the shape of the flower just stamping the middle layer. So, I stamped the base layer with Spun Sugar and then added the second layer with Worn Lipstick on top. And then added the water and the details.
I will enter this into these challenges:
The Card Concept #31 - The theme there is Cupcakes but I used the colours of their inspiration picture. I will enter this into Clean and Layered category
