July 2019 Inspiration Challenge + Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it’s Therese and I’m so excited to host the July 2019 Inspiration Challenge. This month’s colors make me so very happy and I couldn’t wait to start creating!

I decided to use the Everlasting Happiness Stamp Set and color with watercolors. I started with the Watercolor Brush Markers.

Then I progressed to the Watercolor 36 Pan Set.

Next, I added some ink spray splatters. The sentiment today comes from the Sincere Greetings Stamp Set and is stamped with the Obsidian Pigment Ink.

I decided to film as I created and you can watch the video here or in HD on YouTube.

Stunning card, Therese! Your video is a great help to me to learn how to spread the water color instead of coloring every space perfectly. Thank you!

Hello Therese: What a gorgeous card!! watching you create it inspired me to participate on this challenge.
I love everything about this card, especially your watercolor wash in the background, I would be so terrified to do this after all the work you put into coloring your beautiful flowers.
Thank you for the inspiration.
Hugs.
Maria.

I love the watercoloring. I am just a novice at it. I guess I can’t enter the challenge because I don’t have a blog. You need to have a blog in order to enter, correct? Well, I am going to try to watercolor my Altenew hydrangea or maybe my roses and see what happens. Happy 4th of July!

You can certainly enter the challenge without a blog, simply upload and link your photos from somewhere like Instagram or Flickr, even Splitcoast gallery works (I think). Hope you join!
