>>>COLORING PROJECT<<<

I know you have seen some incredible projects with mad coloring skills so far on the hop, but now we are going back to the kiddie pool of coloring. I went very stress-free and easy with my card today (it is the weekend after all and almost officially summer). This is something *anyone* can do and do well as there are no rules for coloring on this sort of project.

shay_IMG_4345

I began by die cutting Cover Model: The Leaf Effect Cutaway using 2 layers of paper--top layer was white cardstock and bottom layer was watercolor paper. I did this intentionally as I wanted the watercolor paper embossed and not cut out and the regular cardstock cut.

I watered down some mustard seed Distress Ink I smeared on my craft sheet and then smooshed the paper into the color as I wanted a bright and happy base.  Next, I took Caran d'Ache Neocolor II Aquarelle water-soluble wax pastels and colored in the leaves which I then blended with a waterbrush.  For each leaf I used mostly a paler color and then next brought in a darker shade at the base.  After this all dried I went in with colored pencils in similar colors and added some more dimension.  Last, I added some white dots using a Uniball Signo pen.  Here was what the watercolor panel looked like after all of that:

shay_IMG_4344

As you can see it looks a bit of a mess, but also organic, loose and free.

I pasted the white die cut over the watercolor panel and then adhered the purple die cut In a Word: Celebrate Cutaway and adhered it all to a white card base to finish off this simple, but fun card.

I can see using this technique with all sorts of dies you probably already have in your stash.  You can also decide not to follow the overlaying panel's pattern (I chose to color using the leaf pattern as a guide, but that isn't necessary) and go for a totally different look (imagine if you color in stripes, dots or something random on the bottom layer!). 

Hope this inspires you to have some carefree, kiddie pool coloring in your future! :-)

Your next stop is the awesome YOUR NEXT STAMP and you won't want to miss it!!

  19. Shay, this is super cool NOT kiddie pool! I love this it is fun and colourful. Very nice. I kind of love rainbow colours and that has always been my fave and my other one is kraft/white. Not sure that is considered a 'colour combo' where they are neutrals but its what I like....

    As far as colors go, I don't really have a favorite combo, but I do have two favorite base colors that I like to combine with other things: navy blue and an olive green. They work well with so many other colors!! Pink, purple, silver, the list goes on and on.

  63. Well this is fun! I love seeing new (or old that I've long since forgotten about) techniques like this. I tend towards blues in all things, but just recently I've started doing Kathy's color plucking with pencils, and I'm finding it really fun! It's like a puzzle of how to get the colors to work together on my image. And it's giving me a bunch of new color combos for the future! Thanks for sharing your cards and being so generous in supporting Kathy and the coloring challenge.
