Altenew June Inspiration Challeng

Hello everyone, Today I am playing along with the June Altenew Inspiration challenge to make a card for my CCC swap partner.  This is the inspiration image.  I love the cluster of flowers and the soft yellow.

I made my card using water color paper.  I stamped a simple cluster of the flowers and leaves from the stamp set Beautiful Day.  Then I stamped an individual outline of the largest flower and colored it with Peerless water colors.  This is my first time using the Peerless water colors.  

And here is a close up of my painting. I think the hardest challenge for me is to let my water colors dry between switches colors.  I tend to just want to keep going until I'm finished.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  1. Beautiful water coloring! Terrific layering with the focal image!

  2. Pretty. Layering is time consuming but the final is so worth it. On the drying time, 2 words - Heat Gun ;-) just hold it at a distance until the image begins to dry so that the watercolor doesn't want to run. Hope you're feeling better. Hugs. Kel

  3. Gorgeous card. Love the colors and your design.
