Good morning! It's time again for another TCP Tuesday challenge and I'm the Hostess With the Mostest this week which means it's a Technique/Supply Challenge. I don't know about you but ever since I got my Copic markers that's basically the only way I color these days!! What did we ever do before Copics?? Well, for one, we Watercolored! Let's pull out our Niji Brushes, fill them up since the water is most likely evaporated, and get coloring!
I have to admit that my very CAS card took me almost longer than a layered card, mostly due to the fact that I am out of practice watercoloring! LOL! But there is something so relaxing and therapeutic about using a bit of water and color, it's fun to see things evolve and colors blend. It does take some patience though, waiting for those colors to dry before you layer on more (not my strong suit!!).
Ever since I saw this Nesting set I thought about making this card and since the set includes line art as well as solid image stamps it was perfect for this challenge!
I wanted the birds to have a gradient effect and a slightly messy watercolor finish - it just feel more flowy and free to me, you think? When adding the Divine Twine for the wire I simply poked holes on either side of the birdies and thread it through.
Alma's blog for all the details and to add your link. That way you'll have a chance at winning some Cat Cash or maybe even the Swanky Stamper title! Have a great day my friends!
