Shaking It Up
You may recall that I am making some cards for Terry Medaris Art Stamps...the only catch is *NOT* to use Prismacolor pencils, which I typically do for Terry's images.
Now, mind you...I am not a watercolorist, but I was curious what would happen if I gave it a try.
I stamped the image "Shake It Up" with Stazon Jet Black ink onto Strathmore watercolor paper. I colored the image with my very neglected, intimidating Peerless watercolors and an Aqua Brush.
Patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, an unknown source (the striped paper) and black cardstock form the layers of this card. A circle clip, along with a ribbon, was attached to the card.
My thoughts...watercoloring is tough. It is going to take much more practice to get it right. But, I do really like the bright, vibrant colors of my Peerless watercolor palette.
