Somebunny Special (Gerda Steiner image)

Hello, everyone!  I'm back again today, this time with a CAS card.  I was inspired by a few challenges - so what else is new, right!

The cute bunny is from Gerda Steiner Designs and it's this month's progressive challenge image. Since I played last month, I received this cutie for free.  I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.


I found a fun new sketch challenge over at The Crooked Stamper. Their logo features a cat, so you know I couldn't resist! Plus I really love their sketch (shown below).

CAS-ual Fridays is having a watercolour challenge so this inspired me to play with water!  First I created a mask using my Nellie's Multiframe Rectangles and then I used water with Distress Inks to create a background inside the mask.  I used Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw, and Shabby Shutters, using a wide brush. It's the first time I've tried this technique, and I was hoping the colours would be a bit darker, but they are what they are, and I like the muted effect created by the water.  For a little interest I added three sequins.
.

I should add that the sentiment is from My Creative Time, watercolour paper is from Canson, and the cardstock is Stampin' Up.  

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

  4. What nice soft colors! I use more intense colors when I water color, so I'll have to try these for Spring. Thanks so much for playing my first sketch challenge!

    PS: The colors you chose are very soft (pale), so you'd need to either use darker colors of ink, or use less water and/or add more layers of ink with the softer colors. It's such an easy technique, so enjoy playing around!
