WATERCOLOUR HIBISCUS

The challenge this month at A Blog Named Hero is "watercolour" and wonderful prizes are being donated by Hero Arts.


My hibiscus are not really watercoloured - I stamped them on vellum and when I layered the inks, they just sort of spread around and ended up looking like I had used water on them.  The background was watercoloured tho using smooshed distress inks and a misting of water.  I layered a piece of vellum over the watercoloured piece with some "Stick-It" and then die cut this background with the HA rounded rectangle die.  Arranged my little flowers and leaves into a bouquet - added them along with the sentiment and done!

The current challenge is open until 10 June so add your watercoloured card here for a chance to win a $50 or $25 g.c to Hero Arts.


Thanks for visiting today - love to read your kind comments.
