Oh I am so excited. I am now on the design team at
Paper Play Sketches.
I've wanted to be on a sketch DT for quite awhile. I used to be on Unscripted Sketches until they folded.. I love using sketches and color challenges. Thank you PPS for letting me join : )
So welcome to Paper Play Sketches color challenge
This is the card I made with the above color challenge. I can see with my computer the bottom color looks more fuchsia .. Hum.
Well this is my card. I did a technique that Jennifer McGuire did awhile back where she painted on water color paper and then used plastic wrap and laid it over the wet painted paper. You just kinda scrunch the plastic wrap. I did it in little folds across the water color paper. You set it aside and let it dry. So I took my Kuretake paints and plastic wrap and this is what I created.
I thought it looks like a great Africa scene so I used My Favorite tree die and the tree greenery is from one of my old Gellli plate creations. The trunk I just used brown paper and I added the wood grain with Paper Trey Ink wood stamp.
I stamped and die cut the giraffes, greenery and colored them with Zig water markers. I stamped the sentiment also from My Favorite Things on teal paper and used the My Favorite Things banner die.
I am loving the way the background came out. If you haven't tried this technique you need to. You will love what happens.
