charmed watercolor wonder

I just got the Altenew Charmed stamp set and when I looked at it, the blooms reminded me of the Watercolor Wonders stamp set, so I decided to try something...

Now it's been a while since I've played at the monthly Altenew challenge . I'm always drooling over all the gorgeous floral images and what people do with them, but can't pull that amazing coloring off myself so I tend to stay away. But I checked out this month's colors and then created a card.

I stamped the Watercolor Wonders blooms using Altenew inks, using the lightest three tones. I masked them and then stamped Charmed with black ink. Added a bit of greenery. The sentiment is from the set, the triangle border is Winnie and Walter Scenery Stripes 2.

Then I cursed myself for not making more while I was using my MISTI. So I decided to try the same design (needed a card for DD who began her studies today) but with the darkest three red tones. And sentiments from Label Love German.

Me likey. Have a preference? Thanks for visiting.

I'm playing at:
Altenew - Feb Inspiration challenge
Stamping Sensations - Flowers
Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS
