A big thank you to all of you who visited during the Blog Hop at Just Add Ink last week and left comments too - so very appreciated!! This week we have a brand new challenge for you from Tina who has suggested this fun sketch for us all to use. The Design Team have created a fabulous array of cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and have a look.
Here is the sketch:
And here is my card:
This is my first try at a watercolour wash using a Zig marker and an Aquapainter. I added water to the paper first and then some colour with the marker before quickly blending it with the aqua painter and a little more water. I am no expert - but with a little more practice I think I might just get the hang of this :-) It's always fun to try something new isn't it? (and if you have any hints they will always be welcome!) For the butterflies, I stamped them in the new Archival ink from SU and then used the Zigs to colour here too - directly on the Whisper White card without water - and then fussy cut them out so as to keep the contrast of the thick black outline.
Card stock: Whisper White (thick)
Inks: Archival Black
Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, A Dozen Thoughts
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Metallic Sequins Assortment, Basic Rhinestones
Non SU: Watercolour paper (Spotlight), Zig clean color real brush markers (Cobalt Blue, Pink, Light Blue)
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the fabulous cards the team have made to inspire you this week and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this great sketch too!
Happy stamping until next time,
