Mygrafico Monday Feature~ Any goes



This week the Design Team got to choose any Mygrafico set to inspire you.... I chose to use a Fancy Flower set by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff

 I really love the lines of these flowers.


I wanted to do a real watercolour look, so I took some watercolour paper and printed the image onto it.   I cut it will a Spellbinders label and embossed it as well. I then got the paper quite wet and took my distress inks and using my watercolour pen touch the ink to the paper allowing it wick.   The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set cut into a banner at one end.  Added some Liquid Pearls to finish.  Pop over to blog and have a look at what the others came up with...

Don't forget our "Baby/Pregnancy" challenge is still underway here... would love to see you have a go.

Had some fun with alcohol inks last night, so pop back tomorrow and I'll share the card I made.

Take care and hope you have an awesome week...
Dawn

I love the effect of the wicked water color. The black background really highlights your focal shape and image.

What a beautiful card - once again I have learnt from you - to print on watercolour paper!! So simple!! On second thoughts, not sure if my printer ink is waterproof.
Blessings
