Hi all! How are you doing this wonderful Sunday morning? I’m taking a much needed holiday break in London, after working like crazy all summer, following my 5 year “holiday”! Before I left though, I made a card for our new challenge over at the Happy Little Stampers Watercolour challenge blog where the theme is always Anything Goes. The optional theme this month is Tropical! Either because our challenge creator, Kylie, is from Australia so they’re coming out of Winter or we’re celebrating the last days of heat in the Northern HemisphereWhichever the case, I was really happy to break open my new stamp from Crafters Companion, called “Wild and Free”, and watercolour up this little parrot. I used watercolour markers from Spectrum Noir, which has a brush nib and a small marker tip nib on the other end, so I could add fine brush strokes to my ferns. This is really useful to add ink into the small corners on your flower stamps or creatures! Really handy for a beginner painter. The background was just done with Brushos watercolour powder and a spritz of water. All this on Spectrum Noir’s watercolour paper. The sentiment also comes from the same stamp set and was stamped with Spectrum Noir’s waterproof ink pad, and luckily so, as I didn’t realise my background was still wet when I stamped it and the ink didn’t budge at all!! I fussy cut my water coloured parrot and adhered it to my Brushoed background.
Well I hope I’ve inspired you to join in and I really look forward to seeing your wonderful creations! Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate you taking the time. Have a great Sunday and week doing what you love!
