PE: Winner at CAS(E) This Sketch challenge! So unexpected for me!! Yippie!!
Winner at Color Hues!!! Wowzers!!!
Retro Rubber challenge Top Pick!! Wow, is this card proving to be lucky for me!!
Hello! Most of us already know about a new challenge – conceived and hosted by my dear friend Nancy – Color Hues challenge! A BIG congrats to Nancy on starting this!! Of course, I couldn’t miss the very first challenge!
The first challenge is to use Yellow and Green. I used some old stamps, that I hadn’t used in some time and did some watercoloring using my Prisma watercolor pencils.
First, I stamped the images from Simon Says Stamp Summer Garden and Sketch Ranunculus using Pumice Stone distress ink, then watercolored them using my Prisma watercolor pencils. Of course, since I stamped with distress ink, the outlines were diluted while watercoloring. So, I redrew some of the outline using a Copic grey colored marker. I also added a few splatters in green and grey colors on top.
I then distressed the edges and mounted it over watercolor paper – I liked the look of consistency of color and texture with the watercolor cardstock. For the sentiment, I used Simon Says Stamp Nutty Over You. I then fussy cut it, foam mounted it over the card. Of course, I didn’t add any extra embellishments, since I wanted to keep it pretty simple. So, that finished my card.
I am joining the following challenges –
Retro Rubber Challenge #143 (I believe the stamps I used on the images were released at 2014 and 2016)
Thank you so much for stopping by!
