This flower from Gina K. Designs I love for its movement, which makes for a beautiful display with just one flower.
Today I visited the CAS Watercolour Challenge for February and found it was to use Red and Black. I immediately knew this flower was the perfect flower to use for this challenge.
The challenge is to watercolour, so in my mini Misti I stamped the flower and leaves on Fabriano 140lb Hot Press watercolour paper using VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne.
I decided to again use my Nuvo Aqua Flow pens to watercolour, picking the Apple Red and French Wine for the flower and the Black for the leaves.
As I work on a large piece of marble I am able to lay my colour down on the marble and pick it up with my watercolour brush to paint and wipe it up when done.
On the flower I put down several layers of colour to get the depth on the flower that I wanted. The black is watered down to give the grey black appearance. I fussy cut the flower and leaves as I did not want any white space left around them.
Once I finished the watercolour I moved on to stencil the a portion of the card. I picked up the wrong stencil, but it still worked, so that is okay. I used Distress Ink in Black Soot for the stencil, doing several layers to get that strong black.
To finish up I stamped the sentiment using the Nocturne Ink and splattered the card base with black acrylic paint. I styled the flower and leaves for more movement, and attached the flower with foam squares and the leaves with glue.
A few clear sequins finished my card. I am happy with how this turned out, and hope you have enjoyed today’s card too. I will be entering this card into the CAS Watercolour February 2020 Challenge.
