CHF - Watercolors! ♥

Good Morning! 
 Today at Cornish Heritage Farms Challenge, we have a new challenge up.

For our challenge this week Ann Marie has challenged us

 to Use Watering Coloring when you create your card or project.

For my card today, I used the stamp set Ornamental Beauty
which has so many wonderful stamps!

I went with the bold flowers and stamped it, fussy cut it out,

then got out my Staedler watercolor pencils and aquapainter.
How I love them - they give such vibrant color!
I absolutely love the technique of watercoloring and could
think of so many CHF stamps to color.
After the watercolor paper dried, I went back over it with
my watercolor marker in Dandelion Yellow and hit it in several spots
to give it a little boost. The sequin was an after thought
as the paper has a bright blue flower (right UNDER the flower I painted, lol!) 
I pulled from the new copy of SU catty for the inspiration
to my card base, stamping a little ridge of the border from this stamp set
and adding a matching sentiment, all stamped in Creamy Caramel.


Want to play along???
If you would like to play along with us of course we would love to have you!

To play create a card using CHF images. You can use either CHF digi or rubber stamps to create a card or project.... anything you like as long as the stamps are Cornish Heritage Farms. (Yes, they can be older stamps).

Once you have created your card/project come back here and use inlinkz to link to your card/project so that we can see what you created. If you upload your card/project to Splitcoast Stampers please use the keyword CHF54. We can't wait to see what you create!

Don't forget to check the Cornish Heritage Farms Design Team's cards on their blogs:
Until then,
Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings!
