FTTC38 -- Watercoloring


Hello everyone and Happy Birthday to my sweet friend Silke (aka sparklegirl)!! I hope you are having a wonderful b-day, girlfriend!

It's also time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC38! Dee Jackson is our challenge host this week. Dee is challenging us to watercoloring. We can use any medium for watercolor we choose and any theme we want. Pretty simple and straight forward. Looking forward to seeing what you create with the watercolor challenge!

My favorite water coloring technique is using reinker & an aqua painter. I prefer to use the aqua painter because I can control the amount of water better than regular brushes.
I stamped this beautiful image from Cottage Home stamp set on the watercolor paper. Then I stared coloring with various reinkers and distress inks. Twinkling H2Os chestnut brown was used for some shading, too. After the image was completely dried, I teared the colored image panel and edged with the brown ink. Then it was mounted on the designer paper. To finish the card, the ribbon & the pearls are added.





Don't forget to check the rest of FOF's watercolor creations!!
