CTS#91


Hi everyone!





Time to join in the fun over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.


The sketch for the week:
 
 
 
 
Those of you who visit my blog regularly will know that I am not good at working with watercolours!!  I always have lots of ideas of what I would like to achieve, but it just never works out the way I want it to!!
But with this card it was different!  My watercolouring turned out EXACTLY the way I wanted it to!!!  When I looked at the CTS sketch I immediately knew what I wanted to do, but I thought it would again not end up as I see it in my mind!!  But here it is and I'm so happy with it!!!



 
 



I started off by spritzing some water on regular cs and then having droplets of black paint fall onto the wet surface.  Sprayed some more water on it, let it run a bit and added some more colour here and there.  Then just dabbed it with a paper towel.  Easy peasy and I love it!!

Daisy die from MFT.  Coated the daisies with Embossing paste and heat embossed with glittery EP.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Just for you'.
Added some black plastic dots as a finishing touch.


Thanks for popping in and have a super Sunday!!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards.
Petra

I must say I am not always a fan of using water colors in this manner but this was a perfect application of it. The heat embossed daisies and black dots were placed perfectly. This is a true masterpiece. As always I love the setting and the blooming flower is beautiful. Excellent Petra. Excellent.

Jy is ongelooflik kunstig. Love hoe jy die blom in die regte lewe saam afgeneem het en die geel blommetjies op die kaartjie is n pragtige kontras teen die kunstige agtergrond,
