Watercolour flowers

Afternoon folks.
Another month has flown by so it's time to announce the new challenge over at STAMPlorations.
Regulars participants will realise that we have changed the format for our challenges, no new sketch on Monday! Anyway here is my card to announce the latest challenge.

Can you guess this month's theme, well we are mixing things up you can choose to follow either our theme of

or the sketch!

or as I did, both! You can now enter up to SIX times and as before STAMPloration stamps are not essential, but it would be nice :) .

To make my card I stamped the flowers to match the sketch in Weathered Wood DI then used a mixture of green and blue DI's to wash in the background before going back in to add detail on the flowers. Let the background wash dry or you will get bleeding as I did the first time! If you want a soft effect then it doesn't matter!

OK, now it's over to you. Although the format has changed the prizes are just the same.

  • Winner voted by the design team receives a $15 gift certificate or choice of two (2) standard-size (5x7) ARTplorations stencils if the project has STAMPlorations products; if the winning project doesn't have a STAMPlorations product, winner receives a $10 gift certificate or choice of one (1) standard-size (5x7) ARTplorations stencil.
  • Top picks voted by the design team each receive a $5 gift certificate or choice 2 digis
  • 1 winner randomly drawn from entries that have STAMPlorations products (stamps and/or stencils) receives a stamp & stencil pack or $10 gift certificate
  • Winner and top picks invited to be guest designers in the October Challenge.
