WOW - June already? Crazy! It's been so cool here in the Pacific Northwest, it still feels like April. Hoping that the heat doesn't come with a vengeance this summer! It's time for a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge
Here's my card
For this card, I started with an A2 sized panel of 96 lb bristol. I added color with a water brush and distress inks (peacock feathers, cracked pistachio, mustard seed, ripe persimmon, picked raspberry). I started by wetting the bristol panel with clean water. Next, I smooshed some ink on some acetate and picked up the color with the water brush and applied it randomly to the bristol panel. I kept adding color until I was happy with the result. I think that the panel looks best when there is still a bit of white space. I trimmed the panel down to 2 1/8" x 4 1/8" and matted with black cardstock. I adhered the panel to a light blue A2 panel. I stamped the sentiment using Gina K Designs Friendly Silhouettes stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink to complete the card.
We'd love to see your watercolour card - doesn't have to actually involve painting with watercolour paints, rather pretty much anything that uses water.
Thanks for stopping by
Your card is stunning Sue! I love the soft washes of colour on your background. It has a wonderfully soft look and perfect for the beautiful silhouette!!! Have a good day! :)ReplyDelete
