The theme this week over at Less is More is masking or stencilling, so although this probably isn’t quite CAS enough I’ve decided to enter it there, as well as entering a second time at Virginia’s View where there’s a watercolour theme. I used various Aquamarkers.
When I painted the main image for this card the first signs of spring were creeping in & it seemed like summer was on its way. But as I write this, the sky is grey & a cold wind is whistling around the corner of the house so let’s hope that’s a temporary setback in the weather.
Just lately I’ve been enjoying doing watercolouring, something my late father would have been very pleased about as he was a very talented watercolour painter. I’ve got a long way to go before I get to his standard but I’ve really enjoyed losing myself in the creative process. This image is one by Michael Powell and I’ve coloured it with Aquamarkers & a fine paintbrush, I really don’t get on with waterbrushes as I find they make it more difficult to control the amount of water used.
I added a stamped greeting from Clearly Besotted, some birds by Inkylicious & a few shells (again, Inkylicious), cut out to add a little bit of dimension. I hope I’m not too late to enter this into the challenge over at Virginia’s View – take a look, there’s some stunning work on there.
The cue card for this week’s challenge over at CASology is “Jump” and, unusually for me, I made a card just for the fun of it – normally I need to have a person in mind. I’ve had this stamp set in for quite a while but have only used one of them before so this seemed like a good time to rectify that. I didn’t like the “Hoppy Birthday” stamp which came with the set so I used a Craftwork Cards alphabet set instead. I coloured the image using Letraset Aquamarkers.
Very quick post from me this morning! When I get the time I love to take part in the challenges over at Addicted to CAS. The theme of the current challenge is “Transparent” and this is my take on it, the glass vase I hope meets the challenge criteria.
