Paper Players 304 CAS Watercolor

 

Happy Sunday, peeps!  Another Paper Players challenge is here, this time with Jaydee as our lovely hostess and she has chosen a wonderful CAS challenge for us:


I love to watercolor line images, but I thought I would stretch myself a little and do a different technique today; it's been done lots of times before, but I usually don't have much success with it!  I managed to create this look on the first try, though:


I diecut a panel of SU's watercolor paper with a Lil'Inker stitched die, then inked up the fern from Butterfly Basics with Cucumber Crush ink, lightly spritzed it with water from a spray bottle, then stamped my image quickly.  I love the effect it created:


I added a few speckles from my trusty Itty Bitty Backgrounds, and then stamped a sentiment  from Watercolor Wishes at the bottom and added a "swoosh" from Work of Art in Soft Sky:


I added an enamel dot, then mounted it on a Soft Sky card base.  Quick and easy!  I hope you'll find some inspiration from the samples the DT created!  You can check them out on the PP blog, or right here:

The "I-don't-want-to-have-my-picture-taken" smile:


Enjoy your day!

Simple, elegant and happy! This is such a nice way to say "Hello." I love this technique and don't do it often enough. I have a few older sets that it's perfect for. This is really pretty.

I usually make a big mess when I try this kind of watercolouring so kudos to you for producing such a lovely fern! Such a great CAS card - you've inspired me to have a go at recreating it!
