We're back from our little vacation. For me, it wasn't a vacation from crafting but rather a vacation from blogging! I need to play with paper, scissors, ink and glue. It's what makes me happy!
OK, enough about me. We have a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge.
Here's my card
For my card, obviously, I didn't incorporate the optional theme of wings. What I did was start with an A2 panel of 96 lb Strathmore watercolour paper. For the colours, I used a Spectrum Noir Tri-colour Aqua marker - Warm Fiery which is composed of Gold, Crimson and Sunset colours. I scribbled each of the colours on a non-permeable surface - I use a plastic place mat and spritzed them with some water. I picked up each color with a piece of plastic packaging and applied it to the watercolour panel. I kept adding colour until I was happy with the result. I let the panel dry. Once dry, I stamped the focal image using STAMPlorations Blossom Sprays #3 with my MISTI. I needed to stamp this image a couple of times to get good coverage. For the sentiment, I used Hero Arts Layered Topiary stamp set. I trimmed the panel slightly and double matted with black and coral cardstock. I then adhered the panel to a white A2 cardbase to complete my card.
We'd love to see your watercolour projects in our gallery this month.
