eTeam Picks Challenge - Water coloring

Hello everyone, Giovana here today and I am so excited to be hosting the eTeam Picks Challenge this month. 

So my challenge for you this month is "Water coloring" easy right? {wink, wink}

I love water coloring, it's like a relax therapy for me, seriously!! So talking about a relax therapy, I inked a brand new image by Catherine Scanlon Designs "Joy".

Here are the details :
  • Start with a piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock, stamp the image with Jet Black Archival Ink, then mist the cardstock with water and start coloring it Distress Inks. I just add some ink to an acrylic block and take the ink with a pen brush.
  • For the frame I used Tumbled Glass; for the flowers I used Worn Lipstick, Victorian Velvet, Barn Door; for the leaves I used Peeled Paint and Forest Moss; for the center I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I set aside to let it dry.
  • While image is air drying, create the background. For this mix Embossing paste and Amber Gold paint, add a stencil to card front and add the mix. Set aside to dry or you can use to heat tool. (I prefer to air dry)

  • When paste/paint is dried, add a piece of blue cardstock to your card front, tie Denim twine.
  • Stamp sentiment on dried image in Coffee Archival Ink, the sentiment is from Strictly Sentiment by Wplus9.
  • Add image to front of card with foam adhesive.

Giovana, your watercoloured flowers look wonderful. The palette is so gentle and pretty. Love the contrast with the stencilled background. The linear pattern, gold colour, and awesome texture are fabulous next to the delicate curves and colours of the image layer. This was a fun challenge...thanks!
