Make A Wish Come True Watercolour Card

by Joanne James26. June 2014 19:03

This is a super-speedy quick post from me today, as I'm just managing to write in between school plays, swimming lessons and an evening out with friends to say farewell to two who are returning to their homelands in a matter of weeks - one to Ireland and one to Australia. This week's challenge over at Less is More is watercolouring and I decided to get another use out of a set that is retiring next week - Make a Wish. Here's my card:

I've been wanting to have a go at watercolouring the candle 'i' on this stamp to see if I could create a realistic-looking glow and I'm quite pleased with the effect. I simply inked the stamp in stazon then used a variety of yellow and orange inks and my aquapainter to achieve the effect I was after. I then watercoloured the word 'wish' in Melon Mambo and chose my base and mat panels to tie in. I also added a small ribbon tie just to prettify my card a little, but hopefully not stray too far from the clean-and-simple look that the LIM ladies are after.

I'll update this post with the supplies used for my card tomorrow when I've a bit more time, but meanwhile I have to be on my way (done!). Back tomorrow with another project - until then, happy stampin'!

Thanks Chrissie! I love the effect, although always get a bit nervous when I use hot pink as my 'white space' - my card looks like the odd one out in the gallery LOL!

Thanks Sarah - lots of ink for such a small area of design, but I think it's worth it for the finished effect!
