It's lucky dip week at the Less is More blog and the pick is watercolor.
For my card I first diecut the sloping hill from a panel, it's slightly shorter than our metric card size, so I chopped the cardbase as well. I then Stamped the sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink and set it aside to dry.
For the sky I used Talens ecoline, a fluid watercolor in all sorts of blue tones and a few layers, heat setting in between. I then splattered Ranger distress spray brushed Pewter and Dylusions spray white linen, also heat setting in between. I also wanted to splatter the white ecoline as it's more opaque, but I can't get the jar open this morning, just yet (reuma is not fun)...
Stuck the watercolor strip down with double sided (carpet) adhesive as I couldn't find the Elizabeth Crafts one and I stumbled upon this one haha...It's super tacky and well I don't really like it, but it works for these thing very well, just don't try to reposition anything ;-)
I mounted the panel with foamtape and adhered in on top.
I thought about adding some enamel dots, but I didn't like them at all, weirdly or randomly positioned around the sentiment...made no sense lol I think it's too early in the morning and I'm still cranky haha
