JAI294 - Just add something new - blog hop

Hi & welcome to the Just Add Ink new year blog hop & our first challenge for 2016.

At Just Add Ink we always like to start the year off with a blog hop to showcase the first challenge of the year. Rochelle has suggested we all Just Add Something New
That won't be hard for the Stampin' Up! demonstrators out there as the new Occasions catalogue and Sale-A-Bration promotions have started. If you don't have anything new from SU! please join us using whatever new product you have and be sure to let us know what it is. To make the blog hop extra special, the design team have donated new SU! Sale-A-Bration items as prizes to the winner and two honorable mentions participants.

So let's get started with my something new.
 
I shared my love of the Rose Wonder bundle in my 2016 Occasions Catalogue top 3 picks post so it's probably no surprise I've use it for this very girly watercoloured card.
I must have been subconsiously thinking of my fave Sonia roses in mind when making it as the watermelon wonder ink I used looks so similar here. Anyway, I digress.

I cut the rose & leaves with the Rose Garden thinlit die & thick whisper white card (backed with a double sided adhesive sheet), carefully separated all the inside pieces, watercoloured them (with aquapainter, watermelon wonder, mint macaron ink pads), then pieced them back together onto some Love Blossoms DSP. I added a finishing touch of glitter with my obsession,
clear wink of stella glitter pen. You can see the sparkle better in this close-up. Sooooo pretty. You can see all supplies I used at the bottom of this post too.

Just gorgeous, Di. How did we live without that pen? Love your attention to detail.

Your card has a retro look that reminds me of wallpaper we had in our dining room in the 50's. Love big roses any way you make them.

Tina said...

Oh, wow! It was certainly worth the effort of picking out, colouring and then putting back all those little bits of the die cut - it looks amazing, Di!

Buffy said...

Your watercolouring is absolutely beautiful, Di! Such patience, colouring and replacing all the pieces; the effort was worth it, as this is one beautiful card!

Stunning card Di with beautiful colouring! I think the Wink of Stella should be sold in a bundle with the rose - it just finishes it perfectly. Kelly x

So gorgeous Di! Your watercoloured bloom and leaves are stunning and the time taken to piece it all together looks so worth it! Love the touches of sparkle and your choice of DSP background is so soft and subtle and perfect! xx

KimB said...

Di this is pretty special! I love that you kept the rose outline white so it provides structure and all soft colour comes from your gorgeous water coloured petals and leaves. I could tell it was a labour of love! xxx
