It's late here but I would have been on time if I hadn't run into technical difficulties! Me and my excuses....
Anywho - this week's Color Throwdown challenge is a great one:
Make sure to head on over to the CTD blog HERE <-----click! to see what the rest of the team created and to play along yourself!!
Here's what I made:
I HAD to use the Hello Lovely stamp set from Concord & 9th again - just had to! After I posted my previous card using it I was dying to ink it up again and do some watercoloring with it. So I did :).
I heat embossed the image onto Canson XL watercolour paper with detail white embossing powder then used 3 Tombow markers (4 if you include the grey marker I used to add a little bit of shading around the outside of the image) to watercolour in the image.
The die cut sentiment is from Mama Elephant, I watercolored a scrap of the same Canson XL watercolour paper and blue marker I used on the floral image. I also added a tiny bit of shimmer to the die cut sentiment and to add the splatter with my Prima Metallic watercolour set.
As a finishing touch I added some Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals to the image - they look more round in the photo here but in real life they have a flat top and look like flat backed rhinestones. SOOOOOO pretty.
I kept the inside of the card simple and just stamped the floral image again with Versamark ink and that was it!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:

I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube.
