Here is a card I created for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #31. I love her challenges! She has a fantastic blog as well! Click here to see it!!! This card was so much fun to create! I love how all the colors turned out! This was also one of the first times that I have been able to use watercolor pencils from Stampin' UP! Wow they are so much fun! I love how they turned out. Check out the close up!
All products are from Stampin' Up! (except for the flowers from an EK Success punch and a $1 Target punch for the smaller ones and the brads which are from Joann's). I started by choosing the stamps that I wanted to use. I knew that I wanted to use the watercolor pencils and double lined images go really well with that medium. So Fun & Fast Notes was the set I chose! I used black Stazon ink to stamp the image and colored it in with the watercolor pencils and the blender pen. The colors I used for that helped me to decide what colors I was going to use for the rest of the card. I ended up with pretty in pink, certainly celery, whisper white, and orchid opulence. I also used the swirls from Priceless to create some texture on the strip in versamark and pretty in pink ink for the background of the card.
I love how the watercolor pencils turned out! Oh wait I already said that!! But I do! Thanks for looking and enjoy!
