We have rain, rain and more rain!
Today I'm sharing a bright card for CAS Watercolour.
This month our challenge is
Weathered Wood Distress ink on Tim Holtz watercolor paper.
I chose this watercolor paper because it is a brighter white.
I wet the paper around the trees with clear water and added some
Scattered Straw Distress Ink that I'd swiped on my palette
and picked up with the waterbrush.
It wasn't dark enough so I added some Fossilized Amber
ink using the same technique.
I had some Lindy's Magicals on my palette from a previous project
so I picked that up and added it at the top.
When it was dry, I inked a foliage stamp from the same set
with Peeled Paint ink, stamped off on scrap then stamped.
I masked the trees with sticky notes and stamped some
foliage between the trees.
The frame was already die cut and waiting for a home.
The "painting" was a perfect fit.
The whole design is on a piece of foam for dimension.
There's still a week to join in at
and the Design Team with our talented Guest Designer, Ros
have lots of inspiration pieces to share with you.
I hope to see your watercolor trees in the gallery.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
