ok, yeah. i think i can swing that! here's what i made:
as usual, i had like 37 ideas, and 36 of them were pretty straightforward. so OF COURSE i chucked those immediately and went with the only really weird one, lol.
i decided to make a card full of watercolor flowers, but i wanted them to look almost paper-pieced, so i decided to stamp the different shapes with various pattern and background stamps. i got to use up a lot of the little random bits of watercolor paper that i use at the end of the a watercoloring session to finish off my pre-mixed color burst colors, though, so it was a bit of a stash-buster in that sense. yay!
i cut my floral shapes from scraps of water color paper i had painted with various shades of color burst, then stamped each flower with a different pattern stamp. after inking the edges, adding a few eyelet outlet enamels and teeny brads, and scribbling some little details in pen, i assembled the flowers.
then i used the flowers to adorn my oversized sentiment, "BLOOM". i put some flowers over the letters and some under; i also varied the height of the elements-- some of the pieces have as many as three layers of foam tape to make them stand out!
i'm hopping in on the simon says stamp wednesday challenge, whose theme this week is "anything goes".
my only regret is that whereas i feel very happy with my watercoloring effort and pretty pleased with my stamping technique... alas, i didn't manage to work in any element of snark with this one. ah well, maybe next time. of course, there are a gazzillion ways to interpret, "W is for WATERCOLOR" and the sisterhood have a bunch of different ones to inspire you. why not hop over and check those out right now?! ♥
