A Watercoloured Rainbow.

Welcome


watercolor.bloghop

 and trundelled along some of the blogs and was inspired, especially by Kristie


This afternoon I got to play - I started by rubbing Gelatos onto an acrylic block, spraying it with water, and 'stamping' onto wet watercolour paper - massive fail!!  
To redeem it, I coloured directly onto the paper and smooched the colour around with my finger, then dried it.


I then sprayed some silver shimmer over it
 - and was quite heavy handed with it.


I had demonstrated cutting this poppy die the other day, and had it sitting on my desk, so applied it to the panel, which I had ripped off the main piece of paper and mounted on a black card base.


A white embossed sentiment and some clear rhinestones finished the card.
I really love how this card turned out, and am proud to link it to the hop.

This card is very pretty and a little different, it almost looks like a candy coating. Thanks for sharing what didn't work out as well as what did. I really appreciate the tips.

Love how this turned out! Sometimes the "fails" help us stretch and find something even better! There might even be a life lesson there, right?! ;)

It's stunning! The silver photo'd so well, and the background is quite ethereal. So lovely with the graceful white poppy. Love the torn paper look too. TFS & Hugs

Wow... this is spectacular and I am so glad you took so many close ups to show all the glam and glimmer. It really is gorgeous Maxine... I love the torn paper and strips of colour. I have that die and would never have thought to use it this way but it looks like this is exactly what it was intended for. Good job!
