Meet today's card "Enjoy".

This card took a turn at some point and is completely different from what I had in mind when I set out to do it. Love it when that happens, my inner self takes control. 
I am using Daniel Smith watercolours for this card from the 66 Colour Dot card by Daniel Smith, plus a few others.

The background is from my stash, being a print made using my Gel press. I wanted added texture, so I added the cutting from my hemstitch die to the design. To add further texture while keeping the background clean I ran the piece through my paper crimper, something I have not used in at least 10 years!
I very much liked the look once I added the bits of texture.

To continue the image is stamped on Arches cold press watercolour paper. The colours as I mentioned are for the most part from the 66 dot card. Other added colours are the yellow, black and turquoise. 
It was also the turquoise I used for splatter on the background. The water in the jug was painted using Ultramarine Blue. The idea came from a vase of flowers that were delivered to me a few years back, the water was a darker blue, the colour added from drops the florist put in the water.

When done with the watercolouring I fussy cut the vase and flowers out as I did not want the beige edging from the paper. I then did light splatters on the flowers using Guaoche and Nuvo Shimmering Pen, and attached the piece to the base using foam squares.
To finish up I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Warm Breeze.

I am very happy with the results, and I hope you like it as well. Thank you for dropping by today. Following are Affiliate links for the products I have used for this card, at no extra cost to you.
