Inspiration Wednesday

Hi everyone, Laurel here today.
Watercolor is everywhere and I have had my Gelatos taunting me for awhile now.
Always intimidated by new things it takes me awhile to jump on the band wagon ;)
Anyhow, I decided it was time...

I was inspired by this print. 
I love texty backgrounds.

I started small, literally, and used some of my scraps of cardstock.
I colored some scribbly lines on a piece of white cardstock with the Gelatos.
Then just dripped on some water and painted over the scribbles to blend them.
Finally I used the Donna Poppies and stamped over top, cut out and added to the card.


I created the newsprint background using the Classified Newsprint stamp by Christy Tomlinson


Am I 'addicted' to the Gelatos? No... Will I use them again?  Most likely!
What about you?  What have you been intimidated by?
Now is the time to try it!

Your pink flower looks great with the print background. I'm a little afraid to try gelatos. Your project is inspiring. :)
