AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop: Pineapple Punch

Colour creations

Pineapple punchOops that was a slightly longer break from our weekly colour creations blog hop than I'd intended.  Back again with the crew this week though for Pineapple Punch.  

I don't think I've actually used this colour before!  It is a bright, happy yellow. 

Today I decided to give it a whirl with some watercolouring and teamed it with Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Mango Melody.  

I coloured the flowers with Pineapple Punch ink and used the cardstock for the word and for the narrow trim.

This card is based on a beautiful Gail Ellis design (here.) 

I've been enjoying playing with this technique.  I've used watercolour paper and taped off a border using low tack adhesive painters tape from Bunnings.   It helps to wet the watercolour paper first.  I usually pop a few drops of my various colours of reinker onto a clear block which I use as a palette.  I couldn't find my Pineapple Punch reinker so instead I pressed a small clear block into the ink pad then used my aquapainter to grab the colour.  So much fun to just play around with the colours.  I'm going on a craft retreat soon (my first!) so I think I'll take a bunch of these and colour away.  Very relaxing.

Here's a closer look at a few bits.  I have no idea what I'm doing with watercolouring really but it is fun and you really can't go wrong.  They all seem to dry quite nicely.  Great technique to play with to feel a bit artistic.

My base card is Crumb Cake and I've embossed the flowers and leaves from Wonderful Romance stamp set with white embossing powder for a soft look.  Rather hard to see when you're starting to colour but got there in the end.
