Hello everyone, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Despite the forecast for heavy rain this morning the sun is shining and it is a lovely autumn day here.
I love watercolour and for these creations I have used some really earthy watercolour tones of brown and grey.
They are all made using some scrunched up paper to use as a kind of dabber to apply the watercolour. This has resulted in a mix up of the colours and this mottled effect.
The really fun part was adding some intuitive calligraphy. Although my hand writing is not good at least I can do this kind of random scribble.
The flowers are by Hobbycraft and sentiment by Stampin Up. I love the grungey look combined with the pretty white flowers.
For the scribble I used black India ink. I love this medium. It reacts differently to ordinary watercolour and is perfect for calligraphy. I love it because it stays a true black when dry.
I extended the watercolour right round the card...
I shall be entering my card into this week's Less Is More challenge called # 348 Watercolour.
I'm still in the process of tweaking my new blog so please bear with me. In the meantime
I hope the sun is shining wherever you are!
