Flower Power

CAS Colours & Sketches #193 uses the secondary colours:capture-decran-2016-09-30-a-12-23-28 Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron and Tangerine Tango.  That, in watercolour, is a real challenge!  Mixing these tones often make mud, but with patience you can manage to keep the palette clean 😉  This week on the Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog it’s anything goes YAY!

On Bristol paper I carefully smooshed, dried and re-smooshed to achieve my border.  Then I added Pearl Ex to add some shimmer.  Ink splatters of the 3 washes were added for cohesion.  Die cut flowers, in vellum and shimmer paper, were fastened with beads atop this left edge.  Then “Bonne Fête” was die-cut 4 times and glued together to give some dimension.  Hope you enjoy 😀

Thanks for stopping by, HUGz Joanna
