Masked Watercolor

Video: May 2017 Inspiration Challenge –
Watercolor Lotus Card
Hi there friends!
When I was looking at the Altenew mini ink cubes
I saw this challenge and decided to give it a try while I wait for 
my new inks to come. I sure need help with color shades 
and the new inks are sure help me.

I know it's a bit messy but I was not really trying to stay in the lines, and not crazy about my blending. Cant wait for my new inks!
I masked my flowers like in the video, I used an older set 
Persian Motifs Stamp Set from Altenew ,  the sentiment: Pen & Ink Stamp Set from PTI.

Thanks so much for the visit!
God Bless!


  1. Very pretty and I love the loose watercoloring style, Marybeth! You are really going to love those Altenew Inks for water coloring - best on Bristol!

  2. Beautiful card Marybeth! After the inks come it will be what card-stock do I like stamping solid ink on! lol I've stamped I don't know how many brands of card-stock since I got the inks last week. You have to tell me what you end up liking! :D :D :D

  3. I think your card turned out beautiful Marybeth, and water coloring is supposed to be a bit messy! You will love Altenew's ink cubes...takes all the guess work out of which shades will look good together! I love mine!! :0)

  4. Stunning card Miss your beautiful flowers, they look amazing and go so well with that sweet and thoughtful sentiment.

  5. Beautiful card Marybeth, this is my all time favourite from Altenew. Mind you I have so many now I am struggling to use them. Feeling very inspired for the challenge after looking at your stunning card.

  6. I like the watercolored look of your flowers and the splatters too! Pretty card Marybeth!

  7. Wonderful sentiment, Marybeth! Love your watercolored flowers, such a pretty pink!

  8. Lovely watercoloring Marybeth.

  9. So pretty, Marybeth ... love how that lovely sentiment is nestled into those gorgeous blooms! Catching up ... enjoying all your recent creativity ... and happy to be finally here! I especially loved your sweet stiched purse and felt headband! Hugs, Anita :)

  10. Such a lovely card! I actually love your not staying within outlines, look so arty. Great effect.
