AAA Cards #173 and Color Throwdown #609


 When I saw the sketch for AAA Cards, I thought it would be perfect for the swinking technique that I saw Ardyth do.  I chose the colors so I could also enter the challenge at Color Throwdown.

I think I was a little heavy handed (this was my third try) but I still like the looks and the technique.  A little Weekend Doodles flower watercolored with the same Altenew ink I used to swink and a sentiment from HA finish it off.

Thanks for dropping by  I hope you give swinking a try

  2. Swinking. Now that's a new one, but looks intriguing! I'll have to give it a try. It's a great way to use these colors!

  3. Never heard of "swinking" but your background is cool looking and works great with your flower stamp. I like the layout too.

  5. The way I look at it, Bobby, is this: add that doodled sprig of blooms to any background and you've got a winner! Just love those sweet little blooms - such a fun card!
