Blowin' in the wind


Today I got a very splattery card to show. We've had fresh gale and I went to a gallery with a dear friend to see paintings of an artist, Emil Nolde, who's called the storm catcher. Perfect inspiration for these challenges:

One Layer Simplicity: Blowin' In the Wind
Crafty Calender: Add A Sentiment
Cute Card Thursday: Bonny Blues

I used a Dust-Off can to move the water colour around. I've been drooling over dry water colour mediums, DH found a shop that sells them in 700 g packages, ha ha, imagine the amount of cards I could create!

The sentiment says in Swedish:

If you really love something dearly, let it soar.
Enjoy if it comes back, if not, it wasn't meant to be.


Materials used: 
Vilda Stamps sentiment, Water Can Archival ink, embossing powder, Newton & Winsor water colours, Cosmic Shimmer spray, Liquid Pearls, water colour paper and a dust off can.

Thank you ever so much for visiting! It's much appreciated.

Love and hugs
Maarit
