Small Bloom Punch for a Challenge

How about a Global Design Project Challenge?

The challenge this week … C.A.S.E. the designer! And I love Charlet Mallett’s cards! Always a little extra pretties! Here is her cards.

Beautiful, right? What spoke to me is that Small Bloom punch. And the flowers going up the tower! I have been been wanting to try my hand at water colors again, but….

YIKES, the first one sure did NOT turn out! Just tooooooo much water. I share this because there is a learning or relearning curve. Just because you did not get what you wanted on your first or even second try. It does not mean you should not try again! TRY AGAIN!!

And here is why. A lot LESS water! A few smaller spots. A few taps on the aqua painter and some good spatters. I even spattered they flowers. The key also is to be sure to let it all dry.

Let’s not forget the pretties!! Using both the Glimmer Enamel Dots and the Sparkle Glimmer Paper. Love it!

Charlet your card is beautiful and thank you for a beautiful idea! I look forward to another challenge.
