It's Sunday night here and time to get ready for another working week! I did take some time today though to make a card using this week's colors from ColourQ.
When I saw these colors, I immediately thought of pears for some reason, so I hunted through my pear stamps for something suitable. This stamp from Hampton Art Stamps was perfect and I decided to go for a loosely watercolored look.
I white embossed the pears stamp onto watercolor paper then spritzed liberally with water. I then loosely colored the pears using Summer Starfruit ink. Once that dried, I re-spritzed and colored with Cool Caribbean ink. As some of the starfruit ink had run into the background, I decided to spread some starfruit ink across the whole background to give a greenish tint.
I spent more time trying to decide how to finish the card that coloring it! I didn't want to cover up the image so I kept it very simple, using a sentiment from PTI's Meadow Greens set.
I'm also linking this up at the Linky Party at Seize the Birthday.
Thanks for looking.
