Blocks of pink and green

My second card of the weekend uses the CAS Colours and Sketches colours for this week with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. The colours are powder pink, berry burst and wild wasabi – although I used my watercolour paints and mixed them to produce the colours.  This was a technique I hadn’t tried before.  I painted the watercolours onto a stamp and stamped it. It looked nothing like the original stamp but I really like the effect. It feels floral, though it isn’t at all!  For the larger plainer  panel I painted it first with pale pink and then stamped again with berry watercolour on top. The sentiment is Papermania.

Entered in CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge #258

and Freshly Made Sketches #FMS323

My fingers dyed pink
Pale, one hand, dark the other
A day spent happy.

    What a wonderful and different use of the technique. I’ve used a plain acrylic block for this technique before, but not a stamp. Thanks so much for the inspiration and for joining in on the fun at CC&S. Hugs Bev x
