I chose the one on the upper left, January. And, here is my card:
I was inspired by a video by Norine Borys, which I had watched a few days ago. I wanted to try her technique of 'loose water coloring.' Here is a link to Norine's YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=549vkaWP-VU It is a look I've always admired, but have not tried. So, today I took the plunge. I had fun with it, and think I will try it again. It's difficult for me to not fill in every part of an image, so I need practice in letting the water 'do it's thing,' and just be loose with my application, leaving white space.
I used a verse from the Altenew Beautiful Day set, and stamped it with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink.
To finish my card, I attached the watercolor panel to an A2 card.
I sponged distress ink along the edges, and added some splatters of the colors I had used on the flowers.
This Dearest Friend stamp set was a gift from my very dear friend, Karen. So I thought it only fitting that I make her thank you card from these stamps! I am not adding that to this post, as I don't want her to see it until she gets it from me. It's very similar to this one, but the verse is a thank you and friend verse.
I am adding my card to these additional challenges:
