New Water Color challenge at SCS

  Today was a productive day in the craft room.  The watercolors came out for the new challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  There was a great video to watch and I will go back and watch it again.  Here is what I created: 



 I used Distress inks for my water coloring.  This card is done in 2 colors of each color group, green, pink and purples. The image is by Unity and the sentiment is Hero Arts.

  

 This card uses the same mage and sentiment as you can see. The inks are also the exact same. The wash on the background was done using the green and pinks on the palate- I would guess that mixing the colors would turn to a muddy brown, but following the video, I mixed them and it is OK.  I decided to dip a little pink and green on the backing as well. The die is Gina Marie and the gems are Unity.

Challenges: TBA

Thanks for stopping by!
