No Line Watercolouring . . . Another Failure
Hi my dear friends! Today, despite what I said the other day about giving up water-colouring, I thought I'd have a go at 'no line water-colouring' as it is very popular at present. So, I stamped the main image from my Stampin' Up ' Birthday Blooms' set in a pale ink and had a go.
I should have kept to my vow to stick to what I can control - pencils - and give up on water-colouring as a colouring medium and just use it for backgrounds and such, because I just can't control it! I can't get the same depth and beauty that everyone else seems able to do, but never mind, I still made it into a card anyway.
I fussy cut around the top portion of the image, stamped a sentiment in black and added a black strip on the bottom for balance and mounted it with foam on to a cream card base that I'd flicked with red paint splats. To finish it off I added a few black dots with a Glaze gel pen for the flower centre and some drops of Glossy Accents to look like water droplets and called it a day.
It isn't horrendous I know - it's passable - but it is miles away from the fabulous creations I have seen other people manage . . . but hey ho, at least I know my limitations! Have a very lovely day my friends. Thanks for popping by to say hi, you all make my day! Hazel xx
