I just LOVE the print that Beate is using for this week's 'Be Inspired' challenge. Isn't it Gorgeous? I couldn't wait to get started with this one! BUT, I must say that I feel as though I cheated with this challenge! And I'm not sure I like how it turned out! I had all these great idea's floating around in my head but just couldn't get them to work out on paper. Man, I hate when that happens!
I had a couple of other flower stamps in mind but I came back to my 'Pick a Petal' set that was still sitting out from another challenge and decided to use it again for this one. I went with the same flower layout as the last challenge (this is where I feel I cheated).
I wanted to try to create a soft watercolor background, but that seemed to give me some trouble too! I took a piece of watercolor paper and sprayed it with water, than I sponged on the different colors. After it dried I sponged on more color to give it a deeper look (I think I should have stopped with the softer look). I feel like this is a product of the 70's flower power era! Oh well, maybe next week's challenge will work out better! LOL!
Thanks for stopping by!!
