I got some watercolor paper and water brushes and I finally sat down to start painting with all my inks. I made a striped background and cut the circle out of that. I like that even though I don't know the first thing about painting I can still make something fun and colorful, it's so easy!
It's a bit hard to see in the photos, but I inked the sentiment flag and both scalloped circles with green on the top fading to turquoise around the bottom, going for an ombre effect. I like how it turned out. I had to throw a butterfly button on there too, since Krista loves butterflies. I used the great color palette from ColourQ this week and the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments.
I also have to give a shout-out to my good friend and very talented crafty lady Breelin Renwick over at Craft-somnia Momma. This is her first week as part of the Design Team over at Hand Stamped Sentiments and I'm super proud of her. Check out all the great cards there, including hers!
Thanks for looking, and keep it crafty!
