CYCI#85 A Color Challenge

Hey welcome back to another Sunday...
its the last free Sunday before another school year starts,
and we are enjoying the last lazy weekend!

We've got another all new challenge from

I went with water coloring for this weeks challenge!
and I really enjoyed it too... here's the dets!

That awesome yellow cardbase is actually a white card base that I washed the edges in a super bright yellow.. pretty cool huh?  Just remember you don't always have to have the correct color cardstock (not that I didn't) you can make it yourself, with some patience and a bit of hard work and fun! I used  Bazzill White for this card.

Next was the water coloring layer.. I started by coloring the blue circle shape.. Which I used an old glue dots cardboard as a guide... yep... and gave it a quick wash.. being careful to keep the color bright and vivid!  My Zig Clean Color real brush watercolor pens can in super handy to get the colors just how I wanted them. Next was the leaf... which I did again on watercolor paper, and washed it in browns and yellows to get the finished look you see.  Then I ran it through my big shot with Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves. After it dried I applied a bit (super thin layer) of Ranger Glossy Accents on it, which dried in no time.

I added the sentiment "Thank you" from Simon Says Stamp - Flowers On My Mind in a dark brown.
My final touch was adding some Doodlebug (yep you knew it would be in there somewhere, tehe). Which I cut using SSS die called Medium Dot Line Wafer Die.  Then I layered them to really get some dimension from it.

until next time...
