The challenge at the Mod Squad Challenge is to use flowers on your card or project and then water color them. The sponsor this month is Stamplorations. So I used some scraps and the Stamplorations clear stamp set called Pocket Blooms to make my card. I used Tim Holtz water color paper for my card. I tried to keep my paper from curling but it seems it still has a curve and did not lay quite flat.
I used the Zig Clean Color markers for my water coloring. I stamped onto the card stock using Gina K. Designs Amalgam Jet Black ink using my Misti as with the rougher surface of the water color paper I needed to stamp more then once to get an impression I was satisfied with. I took the Zig pens and scribbled onto a double folded piece of wax paper and then spritzed water on them. Then with a fine detail paint brush I proceeded to color in my image and the white area around it. I then die cut it with a Memory Box Cross Stitched Border die and placed it on another layer of Slate card stock cut with that same die set. I added some black and white twine around the combined layers and then added it to a white card base. Along the sides and the bottom I added strips of striped black and white pattern paper (unknown brand) for contrast. I also added some inside. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I wanted to add some splats of black or gray color so I took the paint brush and tapped on it. Again, trying to get a bit of an artistic look to it. I am not sure I achieved that, but I still like this card regardless.
I am also adding this to the Stamplorations Never Ending Anything Goes challenge.
Sunny, warm and windy was the weather today. I got a hair cut this afternoon so I feel quite light in the head. I also did some shopping so I think this evening it will be just a relaxing evening of watching (sleeping) in front of the TV with hubby. Hahaa!
I wish all of you a pleasant evening and I thank you for stopping by to visit and comment.
