I keep trying the whole watercolor thing and I have to admit I really don’t enjoy it except when it comes out OK, which is not very often. Most of the time it is because I get muddied results. I’ve learned a few techniques watching videos. Wet the watercolor paper, don’t wet the watercolor paper, use a wet brush and wet the paper, it goes on and on. But just like everything in our craft, practice makes perfect.
I used Distress Inks for the watercolor background, wilted violet, salty ocean, peacock feathers and pickled raspberry. Then using the same distress inks I water colored the yarn. The sentiment was embossed with fine detail silver embossing powder. The stamps are from Sugar Pea Designs. I fussy cut them and popped them up with foam for more interest. And I must say I DO LIKE how this turned out.
In addition to Tuesday Throwdown I would like to participate in the following challenge:
Cards In Envy’s current challenge is Let’s Dress Up (Halloween Costumes). My stack of Halloween Cards will be added to the box of cards from other card makers and mailed tomorrow to the hospitals that I currently ship for SAS4KIDS.
This stamp set and dies are from Sugar Pea Designs (Monster Mash), I also used a die from Stamps of Life (Pumpkin Fold It) to create the pumpkin background. The papers are from my stash. Copics were used to color the monsters.
