The challenge will be to create a clean and simple card using watercolouring. Each month there will be a different theme, or occasionally a different watercolour technique.
In honour of this news, I thought I'd post two watercolour cards I made in the summer but never got around to blogging. They are variations on a technique called Vintage Watercolour that I learned from this tutorial on SCS.
I stamped the image (which is an outline stamp) in Distress Vintage Photo and then pulled some of the colour out of the Vintage Photo ink. I put a bit of Tattered Rose (for the flowers) and Old Paper (for the leaves) on my craft sheet and added some to the inside of the image. I did not use the Elegant Writer the way Heather did in her SCS tutorial as I wanted to keep my card just in brown tones. With Antique Linen, I did some sponging around the edge of the panel and stamped some script and a postage mark. And used Vintage Photo for the sentiment. The watercoloured panel is popped up on fun foam for some dimension.
I did pretty much the same thing for the second card but used way more water so ended up with a lot of splotchiness. I used Victorian Velvet for the flowers and Adirondack Lake Mist for the sponging and text in the background.
