Good Wednesday morning! It's Colour Me time once again! This week is a bright and cheerful color combination. Night of Navy, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Lost Lagoon. I cannot wait to see the idea that everyone comes up with!
I also used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch 265.
I used a couple different techniques to achieve my card. First, for the acrylic block watercolor, I stamped some of the challenge inks directly onto my clear block. I then held it at arms length and lightly misted it with a spray bottle filled with water. I stamped the block directly onto Whisper White cardstock. The look is a nice watercolored effect. I used that piece to cut out the star.
The other technique I used was the Bouncing Brayer (the Crushed Curry layer). I had recently seen this technique used on this card by Claire Broadwater. I thought it was kinda cool and something I'd never tried before.
Like I said at the beginning of the blog post....I'm so excited to see what everyone creates!
