Hello there! It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #383. Our hostess for this week is Broni who chose our cheerful color palette and inspiration photo.
For my card, I used a piece of watercolor paper and stamped my sentiment in black palette ink, then using a circle die I lightly traced a circle about the size of my die cut wreath so I would know where to watercolor in some mustard seed distress ink. Once my watercoloring was mostly dry, I added some splatters of marmalade distress ink for a bit more color. One of the things you can't see from the pictures of my card today is that the watercolored yellow actually has a gold shimmer to it when the light hits it. This happened by accident because right before I made this card, I was working with some Martha Stewart gold metallic paint and had cleaned my brushes in my water cup. So when I did my watercoloring for this card the metallic paint mixed with the yellow, it's a pretty touch and I will try this again for sure. While my watercoloring was drying, I die cut and stamped my flowers, leaves, bird and wreath adding Copic marker detail to the wreath and flowers. I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Bold Blossoms, Winter Woods, Graceful Greetings and the wreath die. Once everything was dry, I arranged and adhered everything to my card front, popping the largest flower with foam tape and added three sequins.
