Today I am sharing a couple of cards made for challenges from Flourishes Blog, CAS-uaul Fridays and the Moxie Fab World. My first card is for Timeless Tuesday #168.
The challenge theme is "Pink-a-licous" and that's right up my ally! =)
I used From the Dest Of for my card. The beautiful image and sentiment are stamped on PTI's Rustic White cardstock then colored with Copic markers.
I went with a simple one layer design this time and tried to color the image as soft as possible. I sort of imagined that this scene happened in a comfortable room with soft afternoon light from the sun and everything is peaceful. Mmmm... love images that speak to me. =)
My second card is for the Feathered Friends challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays as well as for The Spatter Technique challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Mr. Bird and music notes from My Peeps set and the sentiment from Chit Chat set are stamped on watercolor paper with archival ink. I then used a very wet paint brush directly on my watercolor crayons, after a few brushes to pick up the colors I dipped the brush in more water then flicked the color drops onto the watercolor paper.
I let the color drops sat on the paper for about a minute then dabbed the paper dry with a paper towel. I also let the paper dry a little in between adding each color. A couple of washi/decorative tapes are added before I popped the watercolor piece on dimensional adhesive.
That's all for now. Have a beautiful day, my friends! =)
