Atlantic Hearts 160 - Pink Watercolour Flowers

Who loves pink flowers? The new Calypso paper pack has some of my favourite colours in it - Cotton Candy, Lagoon and Pear. It doesn't get much better than that! I decided to take advantage of that gorgeous colour scheme for this week's sketch at Atlantic Hearts. I also turned the sketch over on a funny angle - kind of 90 degrees but not exactly... In order to get my flowers to fit, I had to alter things a little but then again, a sketch is guideline and is open for interpretation. 

My flowers and leaves were coloured in a new way for me - I used a waterbrush and reinkers. I stamped about 7 of each piece and practiced until I had one of each that I was happy with - it took some time as the technique was new to me. I learned a lot and will definitely try it again. 

Join us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and show us your interpretation of the sketch shown above. You have until Sunday evening to link up your project.

  1. I just purchased this stamp set. Hibiscus are beautiful and the Hawai'i State Flower. Your card is lovely - all the colors of watching a Hawai'ian sunset over the Pacific Ocean. Fabulous!

  2. This is beautiful and I love the colors. You did a fantastic job on the coloring!

  3. Your card is beautiful and the colors so you. Of course, the sketch layout is fantastic. I love this stamp set, have already used it a couple time but you won't see one of them until June at Color Dare...keep you in suspense.
