Hello with Flowers

Hello!  It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Watercolor Wednesday Challenge!  I am hosting this week and I chose Dina's Negative Watercolor Tutorial to guide us.  

After Stamping the cover-a-card, Flower Garden I added a very light Phthalo Green watercolor wash.  Next, I dabbed away some of the green from the flowers and added a layer of Phthalo Blue, I left just one layer of blue on the prominent flowers and then continued layering blue on flowers in shadow.  I also added more Phthalo green to the background.  I painted the leaves with Gold and Raw Umber.  For the sentiment, I used a technique I learned from Lydia, called Faux Heat Embossing.  It's super simple and wonderful!  Simply add a strip of packing tape to cardstock and then die cut!  The end result is a shiny sentiment that looks like you have heat embossed it but you don't have to go to the fuss, plus the sentiment strip is extra sturdy!  I used this Hello die for the sentiment.  

The reason I chose to watercolor in these particular shades is because I also wish to participate in Art Nudge #27.

 Thanks so much for stopping by!  We would love to see you in the challenges I have linked!  Hugs!



  1. GASP....wonderfully glorious field of flowers.

  2. Very pretty result - seems a really tricky technique but yours looks great. I am assuming you used a wide clear tape over white card for your sentiment.


You make my day with your sweet comments!!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
