Beautiful day in pink

Hi there!

I have used the Beautiful day set by Altenew so many times before, but today is the first time I water colored it. I was a bit nervous when I started 😨 , but I soon realized that the less you think about doing it "right" , and the more you relax and enjoy the process, the more successful you become!

By this I am not implying that this is totally successful 😉, but I am satisfied... I really like the end result!

Another first for me, is a little experimenting with photo props ! I've been wanting to try it out for so long... Still getting a feel for it but here goes...







I stamped the large flower from the set with Versafine black ink and my misti. I masked the image I stamped first, and stamped 2 more flowers . Repeated it in the bottom corner, stamped the sentiment , and colored the stamped images with my Zigs.

My card was inspired by a couple of challenges:


Altenew Inspiration challenge 

Addicted to CAS ~ Pink

The flower challenge ~ Case the designer : Caseing TaeEun's beautiful card.

CAS water color challenge ~ Flowers


                              


                                        



Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie

First of all - FABULOUS card. Never would have guessed that you haven't watercolored this set many many times. This is GREAT! Second - love your photos today. Finding "props" for your photos can't be easy, but your using glimpses of the products used on this particular card is a WONDERFUL idea. I really love seeing an image and quickly being able to put together what was used by that artist to create the gorgeous card! Keep up the great work! :)

Card is fabulous! Inspired me to try my water coloring again with this stamp! As for props...you don't need them as the card is the star! Less IS more.

You have done an awesome job of masking and watercoloring on this card, Hannelie! I think it's true that watercolor works better if you think about it less and just enjoy! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!
