I like you
Hello. If you read this post here you will know that I got a new set of watercolour paints. Well, here are my first attempts using my new paints. Now, I do love my Inktense pencils but I think they will be put aside in favour of these (for a little while anyway!). It feels like you are using 'real' paints. They are thick but still a lovely watery look.
The card above is a Penny Black stamp called 'gossamer'. I did the background wash onto watercolour card and then stamped the image on the top once dry. I then stamped the image a second time, coloured using the paints, carefully trimmed around and attached to card using 3D foam pads.
This one features another Penny Black stamp called 'sunshine in the rain'. I kept some of the colouring on this one a little bit looser - I love the look that gives (and I think I pulled it off).
Anyway, I'll be back tomorrow with my Papertake Weekly Challenge design team card.
