Sparkle N Sprinkle My Favorite Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle My Favorite Technique Blog Hop!
If you had come by way of  of the super-talented Dawn Bennett, then you are in the right place. If not, then please start at the Sparkle N Sprinkle website! Don't forget to stop by to see the beautiful work of art by Barbara Bruder after this!

This is such  a fun hop for me! I love watercoloring and the versatile stamps that Sparkle N Sprinkle carries make it so much easier to watercolor with! Here is what I came up with:

 The bright purple hues were a blast! (I have always wanted to try making purple cards but I find it hard to work with.) The colors somehow not matching is another deterrant. So the only way that I could think of in order of trying to coordinate the colors is to watercolor.
I have used the "Watercolor-pooled" technique from the SparkleNSprinkle techniques section.
 
You can see all the shimmery sparkles of glitters. And a tulle bow to match.
The butterflies heat embossed with black detail embossing powder and propped up on 3-D. Don't forget the glitters...
 
Thank you so much for stopping by!  Next, please hop on over to see what inspirational art-work  the marvelously talented Barbara Bruder has in store for you!

Donna Ellis said...

A lovely card, Cammy! Like you, I am partial to watercoloring - such a peaceful look, and you can hardly make a mistake unless using the wrong paper. Your card is so pretty in the monochromatic feel it has, and the beautiful shading on the butterflies, stamped and punched. Cammy, did you die the tulle as well? It looks shaded, like some of it is white and some is purply. Do you distress your papers by hand? or use a special tool? Distressing the edges of papers is so difficult for me. Yours looks gorgeous! hugs, de

I've always been a bit afraid of trying to use watercolors, but using the embossing as a guide is a great idea...not sure why I've never thought of it before. Will have to give this a try!
