About my take for inspiration :)

A Thank You card to welcome New year 2016 !
Wanna start my New year with loads of Gratitude...

Its a CAS card with no layers, no embellies. Just a simple card with Watercoloring! Yes my recent addiction are these Watercolors and Mixed media techniques :)

Stampendous Sunflower stamp is heat embossed using Ranger's white opaque embossing powder on one corner of textured watercolor panel. Watercolored using Tchibo Aquarelle pencils using various colors. Surrounding area of the flower are watercolored loosely using gathered twig DI and Tumbled glass DI.

Wished to add  sunrays and used paperstrip and started to add Mustard seed DI using dauber at a corner of card front.

Sentiment from Wplus9 is stamped using Black archival ink, to finish off the card.

I hope to have inspired you.

Hop to every ICR Designer blog to get inspired and play along to win the exciting prizes. Will be then back with Fortnight Inspirations :)
