Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday :) Today is Tuesday so that means it's another Try It Out Tuesday Challenge over at Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart. Our challenge this week was to color our images using watercolors only, no copics (yikes!!!) :) To tell the truth, I've never water colored before. I did have a blender pen from SU and several SU inkpads, so I decided to watercolor using SU inks and my blender pen. I'm not the best at water coloring, so I decided to pick a smaller image that didn't require much coloring :):):)
I used this elegant Patio Lavender Karen Lockhart Image as my main image. I colored it with my SU inks (Creamy Caramel, Wild Wasabi, and Close to Cocoa), and then added Lavender Flower Soft to the flowers. I then created my card base, which measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Perfect Plum. I layered my design paper (also from SU) on top of that followed by my cardstock (which I ran through my Cuttlebug machine using the Swiss Dots embossing folder). I then adhered my image to my cardstock and to the card base with dimensionals. For some finishing touches, I added Primas, purple rhinestones, and a lavender ribbon and bow. What do you think?
Well, that's it from me today. Don't forget to head to Susana's Store Blog to check out the rest of the DT's amazing creations. Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Have a wonderful day! :)
