No line watercolouring

occwater2-6I’ve been doing the Online Card Class for watercolor mediums.  This was trying the no line coloring technique from Day 2.  This was a challenge to get the contrast going, especially with such small spaces…  I used the Monster Hugs stamp set from Simon Says stamp.  I used the Sakura Koi watercolors. I love how they are pretty bright.  I also colored the hearts and letters with some wink of stella marker for sparkle and also dotted some wink of stella in the background.occwater2-7So, I have to show you my first attempt at the no line coloring.  I used distress markers for this, but I should have stayed with browns for the bears – I just wasn’t happy with the colors or the coloring, but I will just have to practice, practice, practice…  This stamp set was Mama Elephants Bear Hugs.  I also learnt that there was not much difference between ripe persimmon and mustard seed distress inks in the tiny area on the honey pot…  All good lessons :)occwater2-8Thanks for stopping by :)

    Both cards are lovely. Don’t forget, no one else knows what you thought the image should look like. We just see something wonderful you’ve created. So fun to be in OCC class with you.
