Watercolor round two
When I sat down the other day to make the bright green card, I knew I wanted to make two different cards. This one is for my best friend and I've been trying to send her a card every other week. I have to work on my picture skills because I don't think I caught just how vibrant the colors are!
Similar to the green card, I made a shape on the watercolor paper first with clean water. This time I went with a circle. Grabbed the colors from my Kuretake Gansai set and dabbed it randomly on the paper. I splattered it again with the bright yellow and gold paints. I love how it gives it a little something extra.
My circle ended up being too big for me to do any layers like I wanted so I had to cut it down. I used scalloped circle dies from Spellbinders. Mounted it on a white plain circle and then the purple scalloped circle. I didn't actually have the right color paper to match so I reached for my copics and just colored around the edges. I used BV08. The sentiment is from Bold Buzzwords by Paper Smooches. The little heart I colored black, used my clear Wink of Stella pen to give it some glitter and covered with Glossy Accents.
The card turned out to be a 5"x 5" square. After I put it all together I found I somehow got a little black spot on the white base. So I whipped out a couple sequins and called it good!
Thanks for stopping by!
