Day twenty-three of the second Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge and I thought I’d give the shiny watercolours another go, this time on watercolour paper.
The background is one I made some time ago and it has been lurking in my stash since then. It was painted with watercolour (a different set) and the texture was created by adding some grains of salt while it was still wet.
The flower was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder as an experiment — I think almost any other colour would have been better, but not all experiments can be completely successful.
Painting the flower was even less fun than on the kraft card stock yesterday; it just didn’t want to cover evenly at all.
Once it was dry I die-cut the panel, mounted it on a black card base and added a die-cut “hello”.
I don’t dislike the end result, but I shan’t be rushing to use these paints again.
I still don’t like painting with the Yasutomo watercolours.
Create a Smile – magic flowers
Avery Elle – dotted elle-ments
Clearly Besotted – hello
Hero arts – embossing powder – ultra fine clear
