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 🙂
