A New Challenge At Time Out – #93 – Breast Cancer Awareness/Friendship – Some No-Line Watercolouring

Hello … bonjour!  We have a very special challenge for you at Time Out this fortnight … our theme is one that has probably either touched us all personally, or has touched family and friends.  This time round, we’re asking you to join us for a Breast Cancer Awareness and/or Friendship challenge … with a pink twist.  Here’s my take on it …

Time Out A watercolour card panel, stamped with CAS-ual Fridays‘ blooms (Mon Ami) in Spun Sugar Distress Ink, and no-line watercoloured (my first time!) with Zigs and a water brush.  The stems are from Concord & 9th (the centre vein of a leaf) and the sentiment is from the same Mon Ami CAS-ual Fridays set as the flowers.  The panel was cut with a Winnie & Walter die and popped up on a grey card base on craft foam.  A sprinkling of Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist (my first bottle!) finished it off.

Will you play along with us?  We’d love to see you in our gallery!  We’re sponsored this fortnight by CAS-ual Fridays (thanks, Michele!), who are offering a $25 GC to the overall winner (as voted for by the DT) …. plus a special prize for a randomly drawn player who uses the pink twist.  All the details are over at the Time Out blog … along with plenty of delicious inspiration from our fabulous DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Yulia from Scrap Horse.  Do pay Yulia’s lovely blog a visit and say hello … and check out the whole heap of CAS inspiration on show!

    This one looks so soft, not only by the colours but also by that scallop; it looks elegant and
    beautiful feminine! Hope you have more sunshine to enjoy this weekend!

  12. Barbara Roe

    Lovely card Anita. I have not done no-line yet but yours is a nice example. Is there a YouTube video? I love the pink and gray combination. Anxiously awaiting 2 October. 🙂 Barb

    Absolutely gorgeous card, Anita! Your pink blooms are just beautiful with no line watercoloring and your CAS design is stunning! Your color palette is my fave and it works perfectly with your design!

  17. Stephanie Lanzalotto

    This is gorgeous Anita – your no line coloring is wonderful – I have yet to try that technique! I love the gray for the stems and card base – pink and gray is one of my favorite combinations. The softness is wonderfully feminine, and the sentiment is wonderfully strong. Beautiful card.

  18. Brenda Lawrence

    Wow Anita, you did a fabulous job with your no line coloring! I love this card, it is so soft and just plain beautiful! Hugs, Brenda

  19. Joyce M.

    This is stunning, Anita. I was wondering how you did those flowers–I have that stamp set and have never gotten those results–well, I was happy to see that you explained it, and now I think I will give no line water coloring a go one of these days.

  20. JennyC

    For a first time doing no line watercolor you did an amazing job. I love this stamp set and you did a beautiful job creating the flowers with the illusion of dimension. Gorgeous. Jenny x

  21. cmayne

    A gorgeous display of your no-line water-colouring talent (made all the more impressive that this is your first go with the technique!) and my favourite CAS-ual Friday flowers. The soft grey adds to the impact! As for the sentiment: I think YOU are amazing!

  22. Jen W.

    I think YOU’RE amazing! I love the gorgeous elegant simplicity of this beautiful card. And this is your first time no line watercoloring? Wow!
