Hi Everyone. It is my absolutely pleasure to join the very talented team at Just Us Girls as guest designer for the month of October. I was absolutely thrilled when Vicki asked me if I would join the team as GD. How could I turn that invitation down :-)
My first challenge with the team is a wonderful word challenge and I couldn't stop myself.... again..... I HAD to use watercolors for my card. I have this great new stamp from Penny Black and pulled out my Kuretake brush markers and got to work.
I began with a piece of Canson Cold Pressed watercolor paper. I wanted the texture of the cold pressed for this card. I colored the image with the markers, spritzed the stamp and then put the first layer down. Once the first layer was down, I added more layers and then took a water color paintbrush and set about adding some detail to the berries and just a little to the leaves. Once everything was dry, I added some blue watercolor around the image and stamped the sentiment.
Here;s my take on the word challenge:
- Stamp: Penny Black Berry Kissed
- Inks: Kuretake Real Brush Markers
- Cardstock: Canson Cold Pressed. Stampin' Up! Soft Sky
