More Watercolour cards - Paper Players#241 and JAI#259

After the class on the weekend I have a beautiful stash of watercolour pieces and now I am busy making them into Mother's Day cards.  The challenge at the Paper Playes this week is a clean and simple Watercolour which is always a challenge for me to keep things 'clean' - I do love an embellishment.  This card uses some gorgeous little paper flowers which were part of a treasure trove I found in Vietnam last year.
Paper Players #241

For the watercolouring I used Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride and a touch of Crushed Curry. But for the ink and the cardstock ring I used the long retired Peach Parfait which worked a treat. Of course the inside needed a little dressing up. (Trying hard to use up old bits and pieces) - like the glimmer brad in Rich Razzleberry.

I have a few other samples too.
This one I am entering in JAI# 259 Just add sequins.

This one uses Strawberry Slush, Daffodil Delight and Blushing Bride, as well as the Peach Parfait.

And one last sample in which I tried the Bokeh Techique - using one of the Techniques from We Stamp For Lara. I have been keen to see how this worked but only just got around to it now - thanks to Krissy who lent me the Kraft Ink. 

I think I may have to try this technique again!

Thanks for looking, Liz
