Yesterday I played around with watercolors joining in on the fun with My Favorite Things Camp Create. I used shimmery watercolors to create a night sky background for this Father's Day card. I painted streaks of different shades of blue, green, and purple, then added some black in various spots and then lightly washed over the entire card with black. Then I painted over each color again to pull a little more of the color through the black. To me, it gave the effect of the moon shining over the lake.
After the watercolors dried, I stamped my images in black, then colored in the bears with colored pencil and traced over the outlines with black colored pencil to make the images pop a little more. Added some gold Stickles to the stamped stars and a few shiny adhesive stars. Then finished it off with black sparkly chipboard letters and attached it to a black cardstock base. I am happy with how it turned out!
I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week: Touchy Feely.
