Retro Rubber Challenge - Top Pick

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 –
