Watercolor Rose

Hello friends,

I hope you are all doing well. Today’s post is about the new challenge at Double D Challenges with the theme “Watercolor”. For more information about the challenge and DD_Watercolorthe lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog. Let’s see some beautiful watercolors!

My clean and simple card features an image of a wild rose. The flower and leaves are so beautiful that there is no need for much embellishments. I used distress ink “Antique linen” to stamp the image and then colored it with my Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils. I like the no-line watercoloring technique and was pleased with the outcome on this card.  For dimension I lifted the main panel off the card base with mirror tape. I finished off with a few gemstones and a stamped sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

The sentiment


A peep at the inside



Watercolor paper — Green cardstock — Nellie’s Choice clear stamp Flowers “Wild Rose” (FLO018) — Sizzix stamps “Blooming Sentiments” (662766) — Memento dye ink “Tuxedo Black” — Tim Holtz distress ink “Antique Linen” — Candy Shoppe pink bubbles — Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils

I tried another card with the same image but in a happy yellow and orange color. I  change the image a little bit by adding more green leaves. I always admire all the lovely watercolor cards and hopefully I can gain more confidence in creating these cards in future.
