I've made this card for the CAS colours and Sketches challenge #143
I've used Talens ecoline, a vibrant, sheer, and liquid watercolour medium, together with Winsor & Newton iridescerent medium for some glorius shimmer.
I've used a template I made by die cutting 3 circles out of some scrap paper, the same size as the card.
then traced the circles to get the bauble shape.
I've used a pointy tool to indent te paper, this makes a border the watercolour can't surpass easily and that helps to stay within the lines.
You don't have to, but I thought I'd show how to do it in the video.
I'm lefthanded so I always work from right towards my lefthand to prevent going over wet places with my working hand.
If you're righthanded than workt from left to right.
I've used scarlet red, ultramarine deep, and light orange for my yellow (apparently ;-) thought it was the yellow lol, explains the colours I got when I mixed them hahaha, anyway worked out fine.
Also gold and white ecoline, these are opaque and quite thick, you need to stir them well.
The watercolour paper is slight smaller than a standard cardbase, I first thought I can trimm the card smaller, but opted to add a strip of glorious gold glitter paper, which I adhered on the inside of the front panel.
see my video if you want to see how I made the card.
