MIM #154 & Virginia's View Challenge #1

There's a new challenge blog I wanted to play, 
and the challenge is watercolors. 
LOVE!
Virginia's View Challenge #1



Sample beauties, and she gives a great bunch of tips to those new to watercoloring.


I did use watercolor paper as she suggested, and stamped my vases first
with clear embossing, then began wet on wet for the background.
Then I added PTI's Delightful Dahlias in Berry sorbet, then Pure Poppy, both misted to give
a more watery feel. Same with the leaves.
Stems from PTI's Mum's the Word
Sentiment: PTI Think Big Favorites #19
I Stickled the center of my flowers, mounted on PTI card stocks: Limeaid Ice & Tropical Teal.
I'm also playing along with this week's MIM, with Erin Lincoln
showing us how to use color & texture for One Layer Cards.
I rarely do a one layer, can you believe it?
So Intrigued with the construct of cards, with all the possibilities. I seem to dream in layers!


Might be a bit hard to see, but center vase is solid.
Also sentiment is a purple emboss.

  3. This one layer shows so much depth and interest! It's absolutely delightful, Nancy! I think you should frame it! I can't believe that you actually painted the flowers and background! Truly artful! I am so pleased that the V.V. Challenge prompted you to try something new...and this is what it's all about! Thank you so much for making my day :)
