Ah the challenges in blogland have been motivating me! That's so fun :).
Starting with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge; have a heart. This went along with the Fusion Challenge; paper hearts, where I used both the inspiration and sketch.
I just loved the look of the inspiration hearts. I wanted to try my sponge blending and this was the perfect opportunity. I love distress inks; #1 they blend amazing, and #2 they splot with water wonderfully.
I went on to be challenged by the Time Out Challenge #49; Love is the flower, and Hero Arts Monthly Challenge; fabulous flowers. Because I used text on my background, with my 3 layered technique, I am also entering this in the Craft Stamper Magazine Challenge; text.
I purchased a bunch of Hero Arts Wood Flower Stamps awhile back. While I really don't care for wooden based stamps [anymore], these worked perfectly for inking up the stamps. spritzing them with water, and stamping. I love this effect, and this is the closest I will get to water coloring. :)
I do love productive days! Thanks challenges~
