I have always loved "Date in the Park" by Afremov. The water colors are so vivid and fall is my favorite time of the year, with summer a very close second! I knew my card was going to be inspired by him.

I must confess, this was not an easy card for me. Everything I tried (I threw away at least 4 attempts) was just not working. I was trying my hardest to recreate this painting. Not an easy task when you don't know much about water coloring or even painting, in general.
I finally took my ink pads and put the color on a large acrylic block and spritzed with water and laid my paper over it to come up with the background and added the flowers. I finished the card off with the die and sequins. The colors are just not as bright as the painting, but I still really like how it turned out.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out the beautiful cards made with all the Master Color Recipes here.
