Hello! This week Vicki at Stamp Smiles challenged us to use the colors pink or blue and/or make a baby card for the Flashback Friday Challenge. I already have a couple of baby cards in my stash that are several years old (I just don't know that many people who have babies anymore), so I didn't want to make another baby card. I did however need a birthday card for my card ministry, so I chose to submit this card for the challenge.
I've been seeing a lot of gorgeous water-colored cards on the web lately. It seems water coloring is really trending after years of trying to perfectly color an image like an artist. I wonder if people are tiring of the labour and perfection of coloring, and want something a little more freeing. In any case, I put down my Copic Markers for the day, and played with water color markers. I've never been very good at water coloring. I even took several classes and it still didn't help. As much as I love the look, I just don't have the knack for it. But here is my creation. I'll keep practicing, I promise.
So what about you? Do you like to water color, or do you still prefer to color with Copic Markers? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a great day! Amy

Amy, this is beautiful! I absolutely love the watercolor look! Fabulous job!!! I haven't jump on the watercolor bandwagon yet, but would love to try it! Someday... someday, I will invest in some watercolored papers and brushes or like you, invest in some watercolor markers. But, until that day, I will just sit and admired all the beautiful watercolored creations that I come across. :)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! This is my new favorite way to use this stamp!ReplyDelete
It looks beautiful! I haven't tried stamping in watercolor, but I do love doing watercolor wash backgrounds (but I am not very good at it and need to do it more often :-)ReplyDelete
