Day three's lesson was watercoloring embossed images.
I got PTI's Botanical Blocks before Christmas and hadn't inked it up yet, and this image just begs to be watercolored.
I used Tim Holtz Abandoned Coral and Orange Marmalade for the flowers and Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint on the leaves. I kept dropping in Abandoned Coral to the bottom of the petals because I wanted them to have rich color. I really like the combination of colors and how they blended.
I also did up another card using Vintage Linens.
This was inspired from a design by Heather Nichols and I just love how it came out!
Day four brought me "no line watercoloring". This one I still need lots of practice on. ;0)
Another PTI set here, Vintage Linens. I'm not too sure how I feel about this one and it almost ended up in the trash. I decided to let it dry and move forward with the card making. In the end I decided I could live with it. It's definitely a technique I need more practice on.
Thanks so much for stopping in to take a peek at day 3 & 4!
