Water color birthday wishes

Hi there!

Happy Friday to you!

The card I am showing you today was inspired by three challenges :)








I used :


  • Humming-birds stamp set from Mudra-stamps @ Paper Curves
  • Sentiment from Altenew
  • Zig markers
  • Versafine Black ink
  • Rhinestones
  • Misti
  • Silhouette for 'fussy cutting' of the hummingbird

It was fun making this card with its combination of watercolor smooshing technique and loose water coloring! I usually dread adding splatters and coloring outside the lines like this, but this time I think it worked !

The challenges:

Seize the birthday  ~ Topping : Birds





                                    



Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie

It worked beautifully, my goodness. You placed your colors so perfectly yet it still has that loose look that I love so much. Fantastic, Hannelie!

Beautiful hummingbird in lovely colours, and also great loose watercolouring on the fuschias! I have hummingbirds visiting my hanging baskets of fuschias in the summer so I love your card! Thanks for joining us at CAS Watercolour!

The colors on this card are fabulous! I'm always afraid of doing anything "outside the lines," too. Maybe I should give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration, my friend, and have a great weekend.

It more than worked, Hannelie ... it triumphed! What a fabulous, smooshy, outside-the-lines watercolour scene ... it's just charming! Hugs, Anita :)

It did work, Hannelie. I love the looseness of the watercolor and the spatters are like petals falling in the background.
