Pretty Girl ...

Hi Everybody,

This pretty card is created with watercolours and I have used once again the Japanese Gansai Tambi paints.

The more I play with these the more I like them and all thirty six of the colours are very vivid and creamy.

The  digital image is from Saturated Canary and there are lots of really cute images for you to choose from ... you will be spoilt for choice

This one I have dressed with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts  and matched them to the colour scheme of my card. The pearls are self adhesive from Want2Scrap

The background to the card is the embossing folder Shady Allure  and I have inked over the raised pattern

The card itself is created with 5x7 Matting Basics A and B and is much prettier in the hand

The sentiment is from the Phrases One  set by Spellbinders and I have cut it from card and craft foam to give it height.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  7. Hi Christina,
    A lovely card, such a cute image.

  8. Very cute card! I have this set of watercolors and I love them too. Are you printing onto watercolor paper, and it doesn't look like your printer ink runs or bleeds with the water used in painting. Is it regular ink-jet printing? Thank you for all the lovely ideas.

  9. A Pretty card Christina, I really like the blue theme, and a lovely stamp with the colouring. Thank you for sharing.
    Have a lovely Christmas with your family A Happy New Year too, to us all.
