CCMC549 Beauty Abounds


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:


When I saw these 3 colours together, a watercolour wash immediately came to mind. These colours are analogous (next to each other on the colour wheel) so they blend together really well. To create this effect, I used Glossy White cardstock and did a wash of water over it with a paintbrush. Then I made a palette using drops of ink refill on a plastic plate. I used my paintbrush to pick up some of the ink and applied it to the wet glossy cardstock. The magic happens as the ink pools and spreads and the colours blend. I allowed this to dry naturally rather than using a heat tool to speed it up.

This was my first play with the Beauty Abounds bundle (thanks to my lovely team member Priscilla who lent it to me!). These Butterfly Beauty thinlits are just stunning, and the sentiment comes from the co-ordinating stamp set.

I hope you like my card! Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page
