You overwhelm me - Stampavie and More #284

Wednesday April 5, 2017
 
Welcome to another challenge at Stampavie and More #284   Our challenges run for two weeks and I hope you play along..
I got to chose the theme for this challenge.. I chose
WATERCOLOR BACKGROUND / OPT. ADD FLOWERS TO YOUR CARD
 
 
I love doing watercolor backgrounds so this choice was not hard.  I used my Kuretake Gansai paints and watered them down and applied to the watercolor paper and let it dry.. I then got out my Flower Patch stampin up stamps set, dies and ink and stamped up a bunch of flowers and leaves.. I ended up not using them all but sure like what I did use. I used Simon Says border scallop die and the sentiment is from that same SU set. I added some Stampin up sequins and pearls. I mounted it on a green piece of cardstock. The black is just a backdrop for the photo so it stood out. This reminds me of spring with all the awesome colorful flowers that are blooming. 
So grab your watercolors and make a background and add flowers like I did or something else that you love. I hope you play along. I love seeing what you make.  Just have fun.

Your watercolored background is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for blessing us with your artwork here at Word Art Wednesday. We are midway on our current challenge and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 which tells us, "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love." Have an awesome week.
