Gobble Wobble

 

It is that time of week that we partake in Watercolour Wednesday at Splitcoaststampers.com. I am hostess this week, hence as it is a very busy time for most everyone I opted for a fun and easy Turkey to bring a smile.

I used Roman Szmal watercolours this week, as the ones I have are bright and beautiful colours, perfect for my Turkey.


Using Arches cold press watercolour paper I outlined the Turkey, then gave up and printed the Turkey so I could trace it. I did the body of the Turkey first, then waited for it to dry, and followed up with the feathers. 

I allowed some of the colours to blend together, as the artist did in the video. I readily admit I had trouble getting this to happen! Seems when you don't want it to work, it does, and when you do want blending, it does not cooperate.

My turkey is more abstract than what I intended, but somehow that does not surprise me as I have a tendency to paint abstract. I do like his look in the end.

When I finished with the painting and let it dry I then took my white gel pen and added the accents. I made a quick cover for the turkey so I could do the splatters. After the first splash I thought "yikes" I did not want them that big! So a change in paint brush size for the splatters, going down to a #2.

For matting I used paper from Gina K Designs Autumn Splendor 6x6 paper pack along with Gina K Designs cardstock in Charcoal Brown.
I made this card for a friend whom I know will appreciate the humour. For the inside I again used paper from the Autumn Splendor paper pack and a piece of Hammermill cardstock which is 4.25" high x 4.0" wide.

Using my printer I typed the sentiment and printed it out on the above paper. I then went around the edges of the white paper using VersaFine Clair ink in Pinecone.

I thank you for your visit today. I hope you have enjoyed this Watercolour Wednesday card.

See you next time.
