PTI Stampafaire 2016

I admit that I don't have many PTI products, but was inspired by Kay Miller's fantastic video, and my friend, Chriss Blagrave to give it a whirl ... here goes!

For the 'Water color like a Master':

A sweet little Sweet Pea from the Year of Flowers
Not quite as watery as it should be?  But I liked the colors, and splatters that didn't smear!
 
Just for fun, because it's my favorite from PTI!:
 
Not a perfect fit for any of the challenges ... but OH did I have fun with my newest
Gansai Tambi metallic water colors - thanks to Julie E. for enabling! - and the gorgeous
Botanical Blocks - I'm sending this one to the Masterpiece Inspiration gallery,
in honor of Georgia O'Keefe.
Can't see that shine?
 
LOve the white metallic!
 
Thanks for stopping by!!

Your watercolouring is simply wonderful, Michele!!! Those flowers on the first card are so beautiful I want to reach out and touch it!!!! Love the teeny tiny splatters and the very soft bg!!!!! That is definitely a small work of art, my friend!!! And the second card with all the black and the metallic paint is as beautiful as the first one!!! Love the little square with the sentiment and the bit of gold thread underneath!!!! These are really breathtaking, Michele!!! Beautifully done!!!
Have a great day!!!

So glad you are playing with watercolors some more. These cards are so fabulous, and somehow just a touch softer than your usual style, though still brilliant. I especially love the sunflower.

Beautiful! The florals are stunning, but I just love that little sentiment block!!! You are a master!

Jeanne said...

Two gorgeous cards! Oh if my watercoloring looked even remotely like that first card, I'd be in heaven. Mine looks absolutely waterlogged! LOL But the colors you used and the look you achieved is fantastic. I really like that second card, too, but the first one stole the show for me. :)

Your Sweet Pea card is a watercolour stunner, Michele! I also love the "lack of" colour on your Sunflower card ... by not colouring the whole flower, you draw my eyes to the amazing touches of colour you did use, as well as some exquisite shadowing. Two beautiful cards, my friend!

Oh, those sweet peas are absolutely gorgeous! Love the Botanical Blocks card too.

Barb Ghig said...

Gorgeous watercoloring, Michelle! I love your details on the first card, and your sunflower is STUNNING! I love, love, love how you framed it, too...so striking!

Brenda said...

Wow, wow, wow! What beautiful watercoloring Michele!! Love the colors, love the flowers and love the card designs. I think you need to teach me how to watercolor!!!! Hugs, Brenda

Breathtaking!! I LOVE both of these cards Michele!! I have those watercolors too. My husband slapped me on the hand too, for buying them because I spent too much that day on Amazon!! Now I want to try making a card like yours!!
