Hi everyone! It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. This week my wonderful teammate Jaydee is hostess, and she has chosen Flowers for this Clean and Simple challenge. I couldn't be more thrilled, if you know me I love flowers!
I have two cards to share, basically two tries at the same card. I really wanted a stamp set with some solid floral images to try some different techniques, and purchased this one, Floral Shadow by Altenew. (PS: There are lots of really useful sentiments in this set, too.) I inked the images up with Brush Markers, spritzed the stamps with water, and then stamped onto watercolor card stock. This first try was a little more liquidy than what I was going for and I almost tossed it, but it started to grow on me, and I really liked the fresh greens and yellow.
Here's the second try, a little less water and the addition of some blue flowers and a black mat. I also heat embossed the sentiment on this one, just to do something different. I'd love to know which one you prefer!
With my first card I am also playing along with the colors at Fusion, and with the second I am playing along with the Blue and Yellow theme at The Flower Challenge.
