|This is my entry to the CAS(E) this Sketch #108.|
This card was CTS Favourite.
You all know by now that I like to participate to CAS(E) this Sketch every time I have a chance. Well, when I saw this week's sketch, my head was empty - no ideas at all. Those horizontal lines outside that box just wasn't talking to me. So, I made this window card instead. It probably is not what the sketch was made for, but hopefully you are still able to see the elements on it.
I am a big fan of Dawn Woleslagle from Wplus9. I've admired her colouring and watched her tutorials many times - actually she is the main source from where I have learned to colour. She is amazing and when this stamp set Flora and Fauna 2 was released and she made watercolour tutorial how to colour these hummingbirds, I was just blown away how beautiful creations she was able to achieve with just "adding colour to here and there". She says that colouring these birds isn't difficult. I was like... yeah right! But look, I am pretty impressed myself! Her tutorial is so amazing and you can watch it here. I did one thing differently, I used Derwent Inktense Pencils instead of Distress Markers to get those details and I think they worked very well with this technique too.
Here are what the card looks open up and a close-up from the humming bird.
I stamped the flowers and birds from Flora and Fauna 2 by Wplus9 with Memento Desert Sand ink and watercolored them with Spiced Marmalade and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks. I added details with Derwent Inktense Pencils. The front panel and sentiment is stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia. After I cut the window I masked the frame and inked it with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
I will enter this into these challenges:
