Anything Goes

We are showcasing Avery Elle Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
I have made a watercolour card using an colour combination which is outside the box for me.

Thank you card

I stamped the images from Avery Elle Canopy stamp set on to watercolour paper using MISTI and Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. Then I coloured the images with Zig clean brush markers. The colour combination was inspired by this picture from Pinterest.

I kept it soft and muted. That is unusual for me. I am brights girl but I do LOVE the muted look. I added some glossy accent to the centre of the flowers for added dimension. I also coloured the background with a warm grey.

Thank you closeup

And not many card of mine escapes from my sequins collection. I have added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkly Clear sequins to complete the card. I adhered the panel on to a baby pink card base with a bit of pink peeking on top and bottom of the panel.
Thank You flat

Hope you like my card. All the products I used on my card is listed below for your convinence.
