Inspire Me Tuesday

Happy Tuesday and welcome to Inspire Me Tuesday with the My Creative Time Design Team. My inspiration today comes from a fun youtube video by Ken and Terry from Spellbinders for their Try It Tuesday. I was inspired to try using a watercolor technique and really had fun with it, as you may have seen on two previous projects of mine.

Today's card was super simple. I only used three colors, plus black for my stamping. For the water color background I used Tim Holtz Distress Stains, Forest Moss and Peeled Paint; and for the dragonflies, Chipped Sapphire.

I hope you'll be inspired to join us for this fun feature. Inspiration can come from anything, anywhere, at any time. Just be open to it and you'll always have ideas for creating something new! ♥

  9. Your card is beautiful! So, I watched the Try It video, I have never seen those two before. I loved their simple yet clever ideas for using watercolors and making special backgrounds. I am so excited... I can use these ideas at school. We have very limited time for teaching art these days. I have tried using some watercolor paints in the past like the wax resist on our Halloween pictures. But I love the idea for making backgrounds for cards or silhouettes. Thanks for sharing the ideas! I am inspired!
