I am enjoying this class so much, and today I probably made one of my all time favorite cards. I have two to share, one was from day 4 - watercolor with stamps. I really need another watercolor type stamp image to get a better product, but this will do. I wanted to bring out that yellow center, but I am thinking it would look better without the string. Next time...
Today, day 5 I watched an amazing artist at work with watercolors and a stamp. Swarup Murthy made such an incredible water color card using a stamp, watercolors(cake) and some distress ink pads. It was amazing to watch her work and for her images to take shape. Her blog is here.
It was way out of my comfort zone, but I had to give it a shot, and eventually I surprised myself.
Finding the right image took some time...I tossed away 4 other attempts before actually going with this one and finishing it all the way. And it took time...I am so impatient, that I am surprised I stuck it out. I used crayola (cake type) watercolors, and some tube type watercolors to get a nice deep yellow, and some distress ink for the stamp image and sentiment. I will have to revisit this technique. I love this little bit of a card about 3.75 by 3.75 inches. The photograph does it no justice at all.
The class still runs another week. If you have ever thought about watercolors and moved mentally on because you do not feel "artistic" think again. I am in awe of people who can see something in their head and actually translate it to paper. I do not have that talent at all. This class makes me feel "artistic".
Thanks for stopping by.
