Happy Memorial Day!! It is a glorious day in North Texas to reflect on the service members that were willing and remain willing to sacrifice themselves for the safety and security of others.
Today I am playing with the latest Freshly Made Sketches challenge #289. Once I saw the sketch I knew I had to pull out my April Paper Pumpkin kit, A Sara Thing. Here is what I came up with today. This is another color wash card similar to my last post, this time I used Stampin Up Watercolor Pencils and a wet brush. With the exception of a few embellishments everything I needed to create this card was included in the Paper Pumpkin kit. How cool is that?
Basic Black base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Whisper White layer 5 1/4 x 4
DSP and Watercolor layer 3 x 3
TIP: To add subtle splashes of color to my water colored background I dipped the brush in water and then added pigment directly from watercolor pencil to brush. Then I flicked the bristles with my finger to achieve the desired look. Here is a close up photo.
