CLEARLY BESOTTED SENDING SUNSHINE

I coloured this card during Kathy’s Colouring Challenge Road Trip when she came all the way across the pond to Edinburgh! So I thought it only appropriate to share it here today. I used Clearly Besotted’s Sending Sunshine stamp set which comes with a lovely sunflower image all laid out for you. I stamped the image on Arches Hot Pressed Watercolour card with Clear Embossing Ink and then White Heat Embossed. While chatting with everyone who had gathered for the Road Trip from America, to Inverness, to Leeds I used my favourite watercolours to paint the image. Have you seen that as part of the STAMPtember release from Simon Says Stamp there is a dot card of my favourite Daniel Smith watercolours? This dot card has a very reasonable price point, and each dot of real paint lasts quite a while and lets you play with the colours to see which you like best and may consider buying a larger supply. Oh, and the set also includes some of my favourite granulating pigments which give great texture – Undersea Green, Hematite Burnt Scarlet Genuine, Lunar Black

The one thing I love about watercolouring above all else is the ability to layer colours over one another. I quite quickly painted the sunflowers but was struggling to balance the depth of colour of the flowers with the background. I kept going back in and adding more colours and deeper tones, layer upon layer until the background balanced with the main image. I die cut the watercolour panel with a Wonky Rectangle die and then mounted with foam adhesive on a Neenah Desert Storm card base.

For the sentiment, I pulled out the Tiny Type set, and white heat embossed one of the sentiments on purple card, attached with foam adhesive and accented with sequins and Crystal Glaze droplets.
