April Happy Little Stamper's Watercolor Challenge

 It is time for a new watercolor challenge at Happy Little Stampers.  As always, our challenges are the best because they are "anything goes".

I had a brand new stamp that I wanted to use.  I stamped the image in black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The floral stamp is from Sweet Huni Designs.  The designer is Julie Hickey.  I stamped it on Bristol smooth paper and colored it with my Tombow and Zig Clean Color markers.  I think I achieved some good shading with the markers.  It was fun to get the markers out and play with them because normally I reach for my pan watercolors.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  It is an entire set of thank you sentiments.

I decided I wanted to frame my image so I cut four layers of the scalloped frame and glued them together.  I nested the sentiment directly on the image.  The scalloped framed image was placed on a black card base.  To complete the card, I added some pink sequins.   

Here is a close up of some of the flowers and also the sequins.  The colors are so vibrant from the markers.

Here is a close up of the sentiment.  If you look, there is a heart sequin behind the sentiment.

Please join us at Happy Little Stampers for our April Watercolor Challenge.  

Thank you for stopping by.
