Hello, thanks for popping in. I'm a little early with my Just Inklined weekly post, but when I was poking around the SCS Mixed Media challenge, this card just came together in my head :) First off, the image is called Daisy Patch from Just Inklined... I ADORE daisies!!! The layout for this card is from this week's SCS Sketch challenge. A couple of weeks ago I picked up some great watercolor paper from the local art supply store... I LOVE the deep texture of the paper!
I used some watercolor crayons to color my image. I used a paint brush and a cup of water as opposed to a water color pen so I could control the amount of water better. I picked out 2 colors for each area, a light and a dark and layed down the lighter colors first, then added water and had fun! Next I added the darker colors where I wanted them and used just enough water to blend. For the centers of the flowers I also added some teeny dots with a Black (100) Copic marker. For the blue background I wanted some of the paper's texture to show, but like I said it's a deep texture, so I added just a enough water to move the color around but not saturate the paper... LOVE the look! Now last week's Mixed Media challenge over on SCS was to use a #2 or graphite pencil... this one stumped me! But I decided to make little dots around my flower cluster with the pencil... it added a soft, barely there look.
Well that's about it. I do LOVE my Copics, but I have to admit I am having a ball playing with other mediums lately :) Thanks for popping by, hope you are having a wonderful week and hope to see you again soon!!
