Watercoloured Summer Silhouettes


Good Evening Folks!

I mentioned that I missed the Less is More water colour challenge but decided to make a card for it anyway.  

I stamped a strip of water colour paper with Summer Silhouettes in Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss, Wild Wasabi, and Hello Honey.  I then used my Aqua Painter to spread the inks around. Once dry I used Versamark and White Embossing Powder for the blossoms.  I cut the strip up and placed onto Brushed Silver card.  The card base is Wisteria Wonder.  I added a little label in Whisper White using the Corner Rounder Punch.  The sentiment on the label is from Petite Pairs and the Congratulations is from For My Family.  Both were stamped in Rich Razzleberry.  I tied a little knot ribbon to finish off. 

It took a few attempts to get an effect I liked but was well worth it and lots of fun too. 

It's been a strange day today.  Last day of term and last day of primary school for my daughter who will move up to the Academy after the summer. 

 Here she was on her first day of Primary School.  Where have the years gone?

Really lovely use of colours in the flowers, and I like the addition of the tag.
