Happy Saturday ... yeah!
It's 8am and time for another Less is More Challenge! This week we'd like to see watercolouring on your creations and judging by what I've seen over the last few weeks it shouldn't be a problem. I know many of you have done the online courses so I'm hoping to learn some great techniques from you.
So here's my cards and I've decided to go for water-coloured backgrounds
rather than water-colouring an image itself.
For this one I've used water colour pencils in shades of yellows, oranges and reds then added water to create a night sky. The city skyline die cut is from Paper Smooches
and I've covered this in Wink of Stella to make it a real city night-life scene.
The sentiments are from Clearly Besotted: Going Places and Blast Off
with a couple of Doodlebug sequins for some added sparkle to finish off!
I'm going to head over to the CASology challenge with this card where the key word is 'Celebrate' and the team are certainly celebrating with 100 challenges under their belts.
For this one I've created a panel using distress inks which I've blended together then spritzed with water.
the panel at the bottom has some twine wrapped around for added detail then mounted on 3d adhesive. The upper panel is mounted flat to the card with a wrap around piece of vellum, heat embossed with another sentiment from Clearly Besotted.
Finished with a couple of Doodlebug sequins.
I'm heading over to the Timeout Challenge with this one where it's a photo inspiration this week from the wonderfully talented Donna Mikasa.
I'm hoping my blended colours will be fit as my inspiration from Donna's card.
Ok over to you now and I'm excited to see what you come up with during the week.
