MFT Ingenious Inking Challenge - Watercolor Wash

May 26, 2015

It's time for MFT Ingenious Inking DT Challenge! This month we are challenged to create a project using the watercolor technique.

...Let me be honest. I'm not so good at it. That's a reason I rarely make a card using watercolors and I don't buy the Kuretake Gansai Tambi even though I'm a Japanese. So it was really challenging for me, but I got two cards done!! Let's see the result of my effort. LOL!

For my first card I used the batik resist technique to create a dotted watercolor background. The dotted pattern is the Myriad Dot Background, and the ink colors I used are Banana Split, Lemon Drop and Bubblegum.

The sentiment is from Together Forever set and I stamped it in Fuse Green.
I made the rose flower using Rolled Scalloped Rose Die-namics and Whip Cream Felt.

For the second card I wanted to create a scene that a bunny is missing someone in a night field. I stamped and white embossed the bunny from Easter Bunny set and grass from Let's Hang Out set. To create the night sky I used Blueberry, Pure Plum, and Wild Wisteria Dye inks.

The sentiment is from Somebunny stamp set.
