Cloud9 March Blog Hop!


Hey it is me again today!

Welcome to Cloud9 March Blog Hop! It is 9th of the month and it is time for another bloghop.



Here is this week's inspirational picture for you incase you haven't seen it already!



Love love the watercolour background. Here is my interpretation of the picture.



How I did my watercolour background? I started out by swiping the inkpads directly on to a acrylic sheet. Then spray generously with water using mini mister. This allows the colours to blend with each other. Then I pressed a white piece of cardstock on it. Remove the cardstock and let it dry on its own or use a heat tool.
I am not very good with watercolour strokes. And I try to achieve the watercolour effect using different method.
With the flowers and leaves, I used Maile's Inking with a Twist Technique. Love the reverse effect of the Rock n Roll technique. 
 So much colours going on with the background, the flowers and leaves, that I decided to scale it down by reducing the panel size as well as adding the linen fibre on the back of the flower cluster. Hope you like it.
