Just Us Girls - Watercolouring Challenge

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and it's all about using watercolouring on your card or project.  What perfect timing!  I recently purchased a retired stamp set called, Blessed Easter and it only just arrived in the mail on Friday.  The tulips are perfect for watercolouring so I chose a variety of inks and used an Aqua Painter to colour the flowers.


 A Birthday Card for Mum


The tulips were stamped five times onto Shimmery White Card Stock and each set was painted a different colour -
  • Delightful Dijon and Daffodil Delight
  • Melon Mambo
  • Real Red and Daffodil Delight
  • Cherry Cobbler
  • Wisteria Wonder 
  • Leaves - Garden Green

Inspiration came from a recent trip to the Tulip Farm at Table Cape.

Project Recipe:
Stamp Sets:  Blessed Easter, Butterfly Basics, Gift From the Garden, Papillon Potpourri
Ink:  As above and Smoky Slate (sponged around edges of flower pot)
Card Stock:  Shimmery White, Garden Green
Accessories:   Envelope Liners Framelits, Circles Collection Framelits, Tea Lace Paper Doily, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Scissor Snips, Aqua Painter, Stampin' Dimensionals, Basic Pearls, Sponge Dauber, Boho Chic Embossing Folder, Project Life Corner Rounder Punch, C6 Whisper White Envelope
