|Valentine's Day Card for my Hubby!|
I am also entering this card into Color Throwdown Challenge #429. The colors are orange, teal and black. I think the thing I love most about participating in CTD challenges is that they have color combos that make me think outside of the box. It makes me try one thing, step back and reflect, and then try something else. I'll admit that my first try with this color combo, while not bad, didn't thrill me. I'm glad I didn't settle and decided to try again! Below is the inspiration and the card recipe. Thanks for stopping by!
|There's still time to play!|
Paper: Canson XL Aquarelle watercolor paper; PTI Hawaiian Shores
Stamps: WPLUS9 Doodle Buds: large focal bloom and larger leaves
Ink: Stazon Black
Recollections Washi black diamond washi tape
Watercolors: Cad red and Virdian Hue
I also added my own line drawing, smaller blooms to mimic the larger bloom, leaves, accent dots, etc.
Finally, to intensify the colors on the blooms, I added extra orange and teal using my Tombow brush markers. They are awesome for adding just the right touches!
