Happy Monday everyone! I hope that you had a nice weekend! I was able to spend some time visiting family, attending a bridal shower, and just relaxing! Ahh, summer! :)
Anyways, it's time again for a new Lawnscaping Challenge!
This challenge is to use watercoloring on your project! You can use whatever you have - crayons, Distress inks, paints, or whatever else! I was looking through my craft stash, and I found a set of Crayola watercolors, so that is what I used! Here are the cards that I made for this challenge:
This was the first time that I ever used watercolors and it is so much fun!! These cards feature Lawn Fawn's "Critters in the Sea," "Chit Chat," and the coordinating "Chit Chat" die cuts. I also found a few sequins that matched the background colors, so I used those as well! The critters are colored with Prismacolor pencils and decorated with a white paint pen. The critters and speech bubbles are all attached with foam tape.
To create the backgrounds, I added some watercolors to an acrylic block and pressed it onto the paper. I lifted the block off of the paper, and then I used a paint brush with a little bit of water on it to spread the ink out and to mix the colors together a little bit. It is a super easy technique to try!
Here is a close up of each of the cards:
This one is my favorite! I just really like how the colors came together on the background! It goes so well with the sea turtle!
I am having so much fun adding white dots to my colored images! This octopus always makes me smile! :)
This one is my least favorite. It just feels like it is missing something. But I really like the blue and purple background!
So there you go! What do you think? I hope that you're able to play along with this challenge! Watercoloring is so popular and I can now see why! :)
The winner of this challenge will get a free stamp set from Lawn Fawn! And they're coming out with some new releases soon, so make sure that you enter!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
