Vivid Vases 'V' and colour challenge


So, I've had fun with these two challenges!  Just Add Ink are challenging us to Just Add 'V', so I've pulled out the great stamp set Vivid Vases and dusted it off for this one!!  And the Paper Players have a perfect colour challenge to coordinate with this lovely watercoloured project!!

I used my clear wink of Stella brush to watercolour with inks onto these lovely vases, but of course, photography doesn't do the final image any justice at all!!  I also added some crystal effects onto my vases, so they just pop right off the page!!

I even used Pool Party and Daffodil Delight to make the green for the leaves!!!  So no deviation from the colour challenge at all!!

And, because I was really having a lovely time feeling artistic with my watercolouring, I've made another card with the same image - fewer colour embellishments on this card!

And there's a little bit of glitter tape on this card!!  Isn't it divine?


  1. Lovely use of the challenge colors. I am in awe of your glossy vases and the glitter tape is to die for!! Great idea to use this stamp for our colors--clever girl! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!

  2. Both your card a beautiful but I do really LOVE that glitter tape! The crystal effects really makes the vases very life like.

    Thanks for playing along with our just add V challenge this week.

  3. I love your rows of gleaming vases Julia - and I just bet the flowers sparkle beautifully! Love the simple embellishing touches you added - the glitter tape looks super sparkly. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
