I wanted to make a card for our lovely neighbour who has been unwell for some time and recently had an operation, and when I saw the “August” card in this fabulous line up of cards on Kathy Tanners blog, I just knew I had to CASE it!
It’s also been a while since I did some serious water colouring and thought it would be a good time to get some practice in.
I did however do the watercolouring on Whisper White card stock. Watercolouring with inks works best on watercolour paper…. yes, really…. 🙂 as it absorbs the water, whereas the Whisper White card stock can’t absorb as much and can easily become scuffed up. So I have used a Blender pen and added the colour as quickly as possible and with as few strokes of the brush as possible. Nevertheless I am not entirely happy with how it turned out. More practice required!
So I made another one…….
I just love purple!
There is a third one, but you will have to wait a few days to see it! 🙂 and you never know, I may feel inspired to make a fourth 🙂
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
One thought on “Bordering on Romance CASE”
Both of these are pretty and elegant, Chris. The second one is my favourite as I’m a fan of purple as well.
