Happy Wednesday everyone! It's the 25th of the month so that means it's time for PTI's May Blog Hop!
They have a sweet inspiration photo this month:
I was inspired by the soft water coloring and the layout
I used Bitty Butterflies and stamped them onto a piece of water color card stock that I spritzed first with water. I used Harvest Gold, Pink Lady, Mint Julep, Winter Wisteria, Orange Zest and Spring Rain. I let the colors of each butterfly bleed and then stamped on the detail lines of each butterfly while it was still damp. Once it was dry, I stamped the sentiment from Painted Petals in Mint Julep and Spring Rain. I framed the finished panel with their Pretty Frame Cover Plate.
Since I had the Painted Petals set out, I thought I'd give this challenge another try for the Make-It Monday Challenge, doing a masked background using water colors. I was hoping the colors wouldn't bleed under the mask tape and thankfully it worked!
Here's the finished water colored panel after I removed the mask.
I heat embossed a sentiment from A Cheerful Heart stamp set in gold and then framed the image using the rest of the elements from the Pretty Frame Cover Plate.
I'm adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Have fun along the hop! I'm so glad you stopped by!!
