Enjoy Today


This is "Enjoy Today".

This card was done for Watercolour Wednesday at Splitcoaststampers.com. This week Angela is our hostess and she has picked this video for viewing.

I opted not to do a scene for my card, instead I did a 4 tier watercolour panel using Daniel Smith watercolours in Prussian Blue, Quinacridone Pink, Hansa Yellow Medium and Jadite Genuine.
I love these kind of backgrounds for my cards, so not having the colours turn to mud is a good thing. But, making other colours with the colours I used is a good thing!

There are I think 4 layers of colour on the background, done while keeping the background wet at all times. If your paper is dry, you will run into problems.

Once I finished the background colours I dried the piece with my heat gun. In my mini Misti I then stamped the Wildflowers using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne, doing several passes.
The sun came out while I was taking pictures. It is west sun and is on the card in full. I could wait for a cloud cover, but thought is was still a pretty picture.

To do my background I used a No.8 Escoda Pointed Round brush. I added splatters using a No.4 Escoda Pointed Round and Dr. Ph. Martins Bleedproof White watercolour.

When all was done I attached a Tim Holtz sentiment to a thick piece of card then attaached to the card front using foam strips.
