Happy 2019! I'm starting the new year by joining the Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge Design Team! (For me, it's still 2018 as I post this, but the challenge is based in Australia...) A big thank you to Carol Mayne for recommending me, and to Kylie Purtell for believing what Carol said about me. :D
The January challenge, and my first as a new member of the team, has the optional twist of Texture.
In a complete change of pace from weeks of Christmas cards and tags, I chose to make a sympathy card:
This was my first chance to use this pretty sweet pea image from Studio Katia, as it arrived just as the rush of November's 25 Days of Christmas Tags began. I really like it in the vibrant purples of my Zig markers. I found a pale green cardstock that complemented the leaves and used an embossing folder to add my texture element. The sympathy sentiment is part of the same stamp set, making it easy to complete the card. I'll add this to Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday anything goes challenge.
I hope you will visit the Happy Little Stampers challenge page to admire all the beautiful creations of my new teammates! What better way to welcome January than to join us with your own watercolour project.
