Fabulous Mediterranean Moments
Today I am sharing another quick card using an image colored with a water soluble graphite pencil with a bit of color from the Splitcoaststampers CC649 Color Challenge and a touch of scoring for the CAS(E ) This Sketch #235 Sketch Challenge.
If you have not already had a chance to visit the above challenge sites, I hope you will do so- wonderful examples from their Design Teams as well as in their galleries!
1). Score a 3 ¾” x 5” piece of Stampin’ Up! Whisper White cardstock on the bottom and along the right hand edge for the CTS235 sketch design (I already had this image stamped and watercolored in graphite so I could not add as many score lines to the bottom as I would have liked per the sketch :-)).
2). Ink the Mediterranean Moments scene using archival black ink, heat set with the heat tool and watercolor with a Derwent® water soluble graphite pencil.
3). Add color with Stampin’ Write Markers- Lemon Lime Twist for the leaves and Bermuda Bay for the motor scooter.
4). Trim a piece of Basic Black cardstock, mount the watercolor panel and adhere to the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
5). Ink the sentiment from the retired Absolutely Fabulous stamp set with archival black ink and stamp onto the card front.
6). To finish off the card use a Clear Wink of Stella® glitter pen to add shimmer to the motor scooter.
