Welcome to a new month at Happy Little Stampers! We always start each month with the Watercolour Challenge. Our latest (optional) theme is OCEAN. Here's what I came up with:
The card began when this cute whale just happened to land on a watercoloured panel made previously using Twinkling H2Os and a scrunched-up piece of plastic wrap. The crinkles in the plastic help pool the shimmer of the H2Os; I managed to get the effect to show up a little bit in the close up below.
Although he is looking quite grey in both my photos, the whale is actually watercoloured a pale purple, with just his belly a light grey. I stamped the sunrays with two shades of yellow ink for a bit of an ombré effect. An extra scrap of the watercoloured background was perfect for the frame part of the sentiment banner. Finally, on the purple panel, I added some wave detail with Versamark ink.
There were a number of July card challenges featuring a nautical/water theme - if, like me, you managed to let them all slip by, here's another chance! (You also have lots of time to double your fun by linking up to the current S is for Sea theme at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!) Grab your favourite watercoloring medium and join us!
