Boy, are you in for a real treat today! We are so excited to have Heather Telford of Bits & Pieces as our guest. If you haven’t seen Heather’s watercolor work, well, it is simply awesome! She makes flowers and nature scenes come to life, as well as push the envelope on creativity, style and techniques. The Finetec Pearl Watercolors make this design have a shimmery, glorious look!
Isn’t this card amazing! For those of you that don’t know a lot about Heather, here is a few little snippets about her to enjoy.
Now, here is Heather to tell you a bit of how she created this card.
I really enjoyed working with the pearl color paints from Finetec; the paint is quite creamy and the colors are beautiful. One thing I noticed straight away was the difference in color on different color bases. Naturally, I pulled out watercolor paper first as they are water based paints. Most of the colors are much paler on white or cream watercolor paper than they are on dark card bases. I decided to do a project on black to really show off how fancy these paints are.
I trimmed the panel on three sides then fussy cut the lower edge before attaching to a mat in a coordinating color. I embossed one of the little sentiments from the ‘Happy Snippets‘ set so it would sit below the uneven edge of the panel then mounted it all on a black card base.
