Devyn: Like I said in yesterday’s post, I haven’t really played with watercolor much but this would make a great introduction to watercolors. First, I heated embossed My Favorite Things Painted Poppies with Nuvo Glacier White Fine Detail on Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor. I used Altenew watercolor set, Midnight Violet for the background, Crimson for the poppy, and Frayed leaf for the stem. I added ‘Deepest Sympathy’ from My Favorite Things Deepest Sympathy Sentiment set with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam Ink. I trimmed it down and added it to Gina K Designs Slate cardstock base.
Lori: This was our second card swap challenge card for the month, and another watercolor! I started out using Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Cardstock and clear heat embossed the Hero Arts wood mounted Map of America stamp. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to watercolor this time in these colors: Gathered twigs, Antique Linen, Old Paper, Tea Dye, Peeled Paint, Pumice Stone, Stormy Sky, and Broken China. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous – Sayings set, and fussy cut by Devyn (She loves fussy cutting! Me, not so much!) I added the watercolor piece to a base made from Gina K Designs Slate cardstock and adhered the sentiment.
