Happy Little Stampers ~ June Watercolour Challenge

Hope you're ready for a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge.

Here's my card

What do you think? Are my colours bright enough to be considered "bright", which is the optional twist to our challenge this month. I say, yes! The colours are pretty bright - they aren't subdued or pastel! For my card, I started with an A2 panel of 96 lb bristol paper. I used Penny Black's Flower Pageant cling stamp. I placed it in my MISTI and added colour with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers - fluorescent green, red, cobalt blue, light violet. I added colour, one at a time and spritzed the inked area with water before applying the stamp to the watercolour paper. Any excess water, I picked up with a dry cloth. I feel like this technique makes it look like you know what you're doing when it comes to watercolour. In reality, it couldn't be simpler. I die cut the panel with a die using Waffle Flower's Additional A2 Layers dies. I also die cut the black border with a die using Waffle Flower's A2 Layers dies. I stamped the sentiment, using Papertrey Ink's Keep It Simple: Thank You stamp set and Versafine Onyx black ink. I adhered the finished panel to a full-sized A2 panel of 96 lb bristol and then to a white A2 card base. 

We'd love to see your watercolour cards in our gallery this month.
