TILDA & CO. SWIRL CHALLENGE


I absolutely LOVE the TILDA stamps. I found this challenge on the Tilda & Col Challenge Blog to use swirls. As much as I love these stamps, I have been a bit hesitant in using them, as I've seen such amazing creation with them. I just recently bought the aquapainter and I have been practicing with it. I am finding that I really enjoy watercoloring. I think this is my new favorite technique. I have done some decorative painting with acrilics, but have not done any watercoloring before. This challenge also gave me the opportunity to use a maya road flourish which I was able to buy at our LSS for 50% off!
Details:
Stamps: Tilda, SU incentive flower, SU happy harmony (butterfly), Boho Background
Paper: SU Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, DP Sandylion - butterlies

Have a great weekend!

Very cute and beautiful. I love the way you used the swirls and the colorcombination!
I know how life just takes over everything at times, leaving nothing to creativity. I hope you figure out what to give the male teacher. Coasters?

She is so adorable! I think the flourish adds just a little bit of wow to it, too. Of course, the coloring you do is always amazing.
