7 Kids Crafts: You are Brave & Beautiful

Hello Everyone, I hope you are having a lovely day.

This month at the Vendor of the Month special are flowers. Everything in the specific flower category is on sale 20% off, just remember to use the code: FLOWERS

For my card I used Witt & Sass Stamp Company - You are Beautiful  clear stamp set. I used watercolors for the background, oil color pencils, watercolor pencils and distress oxide. I had fun creating this mini multimedia project.

When I first saw this stamp set I was immediately reminded of a photograph I had seen of Frida Kahlo.

I tried to emulate some of the colors on the background
as well as the intricate flower headdress she's known to wear
throughout her adult life.

I think next time I work on a card using this stamp set I will definitely use
different colors but I will also use an inspirational quote from Frida Kahlo.

(photograph of Frida Kahlo, not mine)

"I paint flowers so they will not die." 
-Frida Kahlo

Dr. Ph. Martin's Hydrus Watercolor ink:
Phthalo Green and Hansa Yellow Light 

Fuchsia, Dark Flesh, Dark Cadmium Orange and White

Caran D'Ache Supracolor II soft Watersoluble pencils
(I love using these... I need to play with them more)
Color: 010

Distress Oxide:
Black Soot

This was a pretty simple card image but I like the results and who I was inspired by.

Thank you so much for visiting.
