Happy Saturday to you - yay for Saturdays. And happy blog hop day too for any of you wanting a lap around the inspiration circuit. Our theme today is the Autumn Mini and there's so many gorgeous things in there that I'm quite looking forward to hopping around myself to see what my stamping buddies have made. 9 stops today - have fun!
Waving a hello if you've arrived from the lovely Kathryn's gorgeous creation and let's get moving if you're kicking off from here. I'm using one of my favourites from the new mini - Bordering On Romance.
The flower is embossed in black on to watercolour paper and coloured with an aquapainter and ink pads plus a few extra drops from some ink refills.
Colours: Soft Suede, Regal Rose and So Saffron.
I used the Colour Coach for my colour combo ....
Tip: Have some paper towel handy - I'm no expert water colourer but it is easier when your brush is just damp rather than really wet, so I like to dab often.
Watercolouring done then it was time to grab some coordinating cardstock and bits and bobs for the card. (Scroll down for the full supplies list.)
Isn't it a lovely set for any of the colouring techniques.
And that's it from me today. Next stop is the super talented Ros Davidson.
Ros will have a full list of the hoppers too in case you get lost along the way.
Happy stamping if you get inspired to get those inks and stamps out after hop hop hopping!
Have a great weekend. Cheers, Sue
