Seaside Sketches Girls
Hi Readers, I think I'm longing for summer, and to help speed it up a bit, thought I'd do some seaside watercoloring. hehe I'm sorry that the picture didn't come out on the computer as it really is. It appears a little blurry, but when I get it to focus, the colors get so washed out. As it is now, the colors are deeper for the sand & the sky and the flesh...but you can get the general idea, I hope! I've used all Stampin Up products to make this A2 size card. I used Whisper White Card Stock for the Card base, with my next layer being Kraft C/S. I set that aside and stamped my image on watercolor paper with Black Stazon Ink. I painted with the WaterColor Crayons with an Aqua Painter Brush. I just love my W/C crayons to pieces!! So much fun. Ya know, it's kind of funny. I remember back to the days when I was a child with color books and crayons. I really did not have a fond love of it. I could take it or leave it, and from what I remember, I would just as soon leave it. hehe But, I do remember very clearly that my Mom would sit with me and color and she just loved it! She just loved to color. And now, I'm an adult and I love to color and watercolor...guess I'm normal?? hehe After coloring my image, I added an antique brass colored brad. I layered this onto Old Olive C/S added the 1/4" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon. I added this to my card base and waaalaaaaaaaaaa, it's done!
I want to thank you for stopping by today, I hope I was able to inspire you to try a little water coloring today! Have fun!!
Take care & happy stamping,
