Hello! Today I have a new challenge coming at you from As You See It Challenges! LOVED this sketch. I obviously took it VERY literally but of course, you can do any repeated image! I also used a technique called watercolor smooshing. It is so easy and beautiful! Click to go check out the challenge over at the As You See It Challenge blog! I hope you can join us this week. The colors I used are from the Color Throwdown challenge. I actually used their colors in last week’s card but was too late to enter it by the time I got the blog post written!
If you read my last blog post, you’ll know that I’m participating in the The Daily Marker’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge. This card was a 2 day process. After it dried the first day, I ended up adding more color and decided to tie in the Basic Grey by adding it with an Aquapainter on one side of the heart for a shadow. *TIP: Our new Archival Ink pads in Basic Black and Basic Grey are not made for watercoloring and will dye the ends of your brush. They also don’t move as well as our regular inks as they aren’t water-based.
Here’s the sketch and color challenge I used this week!
Basic Gray Cardstock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
Watercolor Paper: I recommend using a larger piece and cutting it down after everything was dry. It ended up being 4-3/4″ x 3-15/16″ but I didn’t even measure it to get that. I just cut where I liked how the edges looked with the pattern.
Cardstock Vellum: 1-1/8″ x 3″ (to edge of scallop, the original piece was larger) Scallops were cut using the Squares Collection Framelits Dies.
