Hey Foxie

Hello all. I hope this finds you well.

I have been busy getting my blog finished, so have not been doing a lot of card making. Alas today is when the design team post their cards for tomorrow's Watercolour Wednesday challenge at Splitcoaststampers. 

This week the challenge is Watercolour Imprints. This technique has a couple of ways it can be done, I am using the stencil technique.

I am also using some new to me watercolours. They are also relatively new to the market being introduced a few years back. I saw them while visiting my most favourite place in the world, Jackson's Art in the UK. I buy almost all my watercolour there, as well as my brushes. 

I was intrigued when I read about these full pan watercolours and when I saw the colours I became more intrigued. They are handmade watercolours with 140 colours of which 117 are single pigment. Yes, I bought a few and plan to add to them as I am most impressed. This is what I have so far.

I admit, I have a thing for watercolours.

Back to my card. For this I used Quinacridone Gold, Quinacridone Maroon, Transparent Turquoise  and Terra Pozzupli. Yes, the Terra Pozzupli is the rust colour on the fox where I also added some of the Transparent Turquoise. My reasoning was the fox was walking the forest floor and it dyed his fur. 😊

As I mentioned I did the stencil technique for the background, using Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper along with the above watercolours. I sprayed the front with clean water and started to add the colours, and as the piece started to curl I sprayed the back so it would flatten out. Once all the colour was added I placed the stencil on top and as it was not curling I left it to dry. 

Once dry I attached the piece to a Gina K Design Cherry Red card base then added some splatter with some red watercolour.

In the meantime in my mini Misti I stamped the fox using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne and as I mentioned above, I water coloured with the Terra Pozzupli and Transparent Turquoise. I painted a scrap piece of watercolour paper using the Quinacridone Gold and die cut two of the hey die from it and glued them together, then glued on the card.

I styled the fox a bit and propped him on the card using foam squares, then added a few gems to finish.

Another fun card for today. I hope you enjoy it as well and thank you for visiting.
