Watercolored Violets

When I saw this stamp and die set at my Local scrapbooking store I thought oh my I have to get that, it was so pretty in the packaging, but for someone that doesn't color well that can be scary because you know it isn't going to turn out looking as nice as their's, and even though it didn't turn out looking as nice I was happy with what I achieved.  I used my Spectrum Aqua markers by adding the color to my acrylic block and adding a bit of water, in some places I added the color directly to the image and blended with water.


I didn't use the die that comes with it on this card, I just stamped it directly to the cardstock.


Cottage Cutz -- Violets flower February stamp and die set, colored w/Spectrum Aqua Markers
Spellbinders - Labels 8 and A2 Devine Eloquence dies
Papers from Cardmaking & papercraft magazine
Queen & co. - Light pink gems

I am getting excited we are going to break this heat wave and get back down to our normal temps by the end of the week, then it will feel more like Fall.

Hope your week is off to a good start, thanks so much for taking the time out to stop by today,

Connie

OMG, Connie, you colored it so prettily! I would not be able to resist this set, either. My impulse shopping has really been curbed since our local paper crafts store closed. I didn't know Cottage Cutz made stamps. Again, really super watercoloring!

Don't be so hard on yourself. I think you did a fantastic job watercolouring this image. The purple really pops with that rich green and hint of yellow. Love this card!

Glad to hear someone is enjoying a break in summer's heat, Connie. Today we are expected to be in our normal range for September - 93 to 95 degrees. Sigh - but September is always our warmest, most humid month.

Your delightful violets are brilliantly colored! I imagine your lovely card is even more spectacular in person, with the beautiful papers and die cuts, not to mention that fantastic image! hugs, de
