Abstract Circles

Tuesday, 16 March 2021

 Happy Watercolour Wednesday to you. 
This week we are painting abstract circles and what fun it was.

Our reference video for this week can be found here.

I started with the circles, from largest to smallest using Daniel Smith watercolours. I am enjoying using my green palette a lot lately, and that it was I picked to use for this challenge.

I started with the Cascade Green, which is the light blue colour, some Jadeite Genuine, Green Gold, Green Apatite Genuine, moving to Sap Green and finishing with Undersea Green. I spritzed the wet watercolour as she did in the video, but I got wider dribbles which I actually like.

I let the piece dry naturally, then did splatters using some of the same colours and allowed those to dry. Placing the panel in my mini Misti, I arranged the stamps and stamped the circles around the paint using VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne.

I heat the piece using my heat tool to set the black ink. I have been known to smudge it at this point in the past.

In my mini Misti I then stamped the sentiment using VersaMark embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Wake up create Repeat. Love that sentiment.

I finished by adding foam tape to the back of the card and applying the piece to a Gina K Design card base of  Fresh Asparagus card.

This is a fun process so I hope you will give it a go. Following are Affiliate links for the products that I used to make this card, at no extra cost to you.
