Well I want to share my second try with doing water coloring, this time I took the water out of my Aqua painter and had a little dish with water on my table to dab water onto the water color paper in the areas that I was working on. This seem to give me more control over where the ink went on the area I was working on. I moved all around on the image, so I was not working on a area close to a area I had just finished.
As you can see, I had better control of the shading that I did on the image. Oh one thing I did do was take my stamp pads and inked up the image in two different colors. I used Blushing Bride for the flower and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves. Not to bad for my second time water coloring!! I did use my water color paper from Michael's for this just because I got it for 40% off and was a cheaper paper for me to experiment with while I teach myself to water color. Oh, I did use Soft Sky to add color behind the image, it gives a nice soft appearance to the card front.
My card base is Soft Sky. I mounted my art piece to a piece of Blushing Bride. The sentiment was stamped with Sahara Sand. The sentiment is from a retired set, but you could use any kind of sentiment with this image.
My next try I want to do in yellow. I have two aunts with upcoming birthdays and they will be receiving my art projects, I hope they like them!! Now onto some more Valentine cards, it is coming faster than I want it too!
