Hi! Today I'm joining along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a project featuring a watercolor wash background:
I made a card for my sweet sister Marlene featuring a watercolored washed background. I heat embossed the background using the Background Basics Newsprint stamp set then used an image and sentiment from the Round and Round stamp set:
I also have an oil painted garden scene inspired by Nancy Medina painted on a 12" x 12" canvas:
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge:
and for card color inspiration, I'm joining along with this week's Color Throwdown challenge:
I'm linking my painting to this week's Paint Party Friday site:
Many thanks for stopping by!
Be Sweet :)
