Hello!!! The weekend is over and here in the US Thanksgiving is just a few days away. My youngest is so excited that he only has two days of school and my oldest is happy because he gets is birthday off (Wednesday the 23rd... can't believe he is 18!!)!! Found some time this weekend to do some coloring with the newly released Hello Lovely stamp set from Concord & 9th. When I saw that set I absolutely had to have it!! The large floral image is stunning! I had only planned on practicing my watercoloring with the image so I stamped in on some inexpensive watercolor paper. My stamping wasn't that great because I thought was just practicing! But as I got more and more into the coloring I was liking what I saw and so when I was done I turned it into a finished card. I'm going to add this to the current Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge of sparkle and shine, as well as the current Flower challenge (occasions... I'm planning on using this as a birthday card for my younger sister). I colored the image using my ZIGs (orange, 3 shades of green, red and pink) and clean water. Once the image was fully colored I used a gray ZIG to add shadowing around the image. Clear Wink of Stella was added to the image, as well. I then stamped the sentiment using my mini MISTI and VersaFine Onyx Black ink. The hello was stamped on the same watercolor paper, trimmed down and then covered with more Wink of Stella. I trimmed down the panel, adhered the hello with foam dimensionals and then added some Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins. Layered the panel with some black cardstock on a green cardstock base and I was done. I have included a close up photo so you can see the sparkle from the Wink of Stella.
Hope you have a wonderful day..
