BGC#57 - Watercolor cards with PJ

Hello my lovely readers !
I am loving all the creations you are giving us so far in our challenges!
aren't you enjoying our new theme ?
Well i totally did ! :) lets check out the guidelines again 

Challenge Guidelines : 

Make a card , LO or a 3D project (strictly paper crafts )

You must use Watercolours in the project ! 

Go CAS, fully layered, color an image or create a completely new design of your own with watercolors! Just have fun. ... with watercolors! 

Dates :  16th Aug - 31st Aug.

So ok :) here is what i made 
 There are many ways to go about this challenge . 
I am demonstrating two , Stamped image coloring and freehand watercolour painting !

 In the above card i have stamped the floral image on watercolor paper . 
Then i went ahead and colored it using watercolors and added a wash of blue all around the image. once it was dry i stamped my sentiment and the arrow stamp in the corners.

 For this card i just went free hand ! i did some colored circles and random shapes to make my flowers and created some green spaces in between to make my leaves. once it was dry i went over the whole thing forming leaves and flowers with my waterproof black pen. It then formed this bouquet . Its not perfect but i think i like this one better than the perfectly stamped image card. :)

What are your thoughts ? I would love to hear them :)  

 You can join the challenge HERE 
See u next month ! :) with more


  1. Beautiful card PJ..
    One doubt.. do we have to use only water colors or watercolor pencils, distress water coloring and some other water coloring techniques are allowed ?

    1. You can use watercolors , watercolors pencils and other techniques as long as it looks similar to watercolor effect . Please explain in your post how and what you did if you are using anything other than traditional watercolors or pencils ! Thanks for asking :)
