Get Your Happy On

On Arches Cold Press 140lb watercolour paper I sectioned off the area for painting with tape, running both horizontal and vertically. I have been having a sweet on with my Daniel Smith Green palette colours, so of course I would use the greens. The first is Jadeite Genuine, then Cascade Green (my new fave) and lastly Serpentine Genuine.

Instead of showing the colours light to dark I decided to show off the granulation in the colours. It is so interesting, and I know both Peter and Sylvia will take note of this as they are both very keen on the Arts.

Hence there is a reasoning behind my choice. Once the piece was dry in my mini Misti I stamped the stem branch using VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne. I then stamped the sentiment using the same ink.

And to finish, I added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Woodland Green.

I really do love these colours and love the way this turned out, so I thank Debby for the inspiration.
