Happy Monday friends! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is only a few days away. We are hosting our first Thanksgiving as husband and wife so I have been a little more than nervous. We spent the weekend prepping the house for all of our family and trying to unpack those last lingering boxes. The weather has gotten cold so I think it must officially be winter.
I sat down last night at my stamp table to get some much needed creative time in and decided to practice my watercoloring skills. Wow, talk about struggles. I made several attempts to color the cheese stamp from the Stampin Up set Giggle Greetings. My first attempt was going well until the red I was coloring the candle with spread all over my image….FAIL #1. I didn’t get discouraged and reminded myself that you have to be patient when watercoloring and let your image dry before moving onto the next part you want to color. So I tried a new watercolor medium for my second attempt by using some watercolor markers. FAIL #2 became very apparent as my cheese became a florescent color making it look like it had been treated with radioactivity.
So I went back to old faithful and just colored the image with some blender pens. I actually was happy with how the coloring turned out. Simple and crisp color.
