This post is part of a blog hop to celebrate the new Create Joy release from Simon Says Stamp so please read to the end of the post for more details :D
As I mentioned yesterday I’m blogging on location at the moment with just a couple of the new sets and a small selection of carefully chosen supplies! Top on the list of things that got thrown into my bag were, of course, my watercolours. I stamped the gorgeous sentiment along with the sprig image from For To Us in Versamark on watercolor card and white heat embossed.
for to us a child is born, to us a son is given
In the main I used Winsor & Newton tube watercolors and gave a light wash of color to each of the areas with touches of darker color and then when dry went back in and deepened the colors in a few areas some more. I added a sprinkling of sequins and mounted on a top folding card base made from more of the watercolor card.
This was such a therapeutic card to make having charged around after the children while on our activity based holiday. Sore feet up, cup of coffee and my watercolors made a great end to a very active day! Oh and a good exercise in working with minimal supplies too :D
I also packed a few Copics if you’d like to check out this post from yesterday :D
