Hi. This is a card I made on the weekend, trying to watercolor images yet again! This one came out a bit better but I still need lots of practice. For this card I used the latest Viva la Verve sketch and the colors from ColourQ.
I white-embossed my Clearly Besotted image then colored with Strawberry Slush and Lucky Limeade ink, using water and a paintbrush. Once that was dry, I did a very pale wash of Bermuda Bay in the background.
I didn't want to detract from the central image by using patterned paper for the next layer, so I did another watercolor wash, this time using Lucky Limeade, then die-cut using a stitched mat die. Here's a close up:
