I have chosen the 'Country Livin''and 'Sunshine Sayings' stamp sets as my Carry Over products along with the fabulous aqua painters and Stampin' Write Markers.

Here is my card


A Life Time Of Love



#KOCreationscards #Countrylivin #Sunshinesayings #Watercolouring #Imarty #Stampinup #Rubberstamping #Guitars #Cowboys

My card stock is thick Whisper White with a layer of Dapper Denim for contrast.
I stamped my images using the memento black ink and let dry before water colouring with the Aqua painters.
I was after a real water colour feel with my images so I was really rough and super quick when painting. Skipping between the sections so the colours do not bleed into each other. Let dry a little before adding in the darker areas for a truer water colour effect.
Using the large stitched shapes ovel I die cut the coloured pickup. Layering this with dapper denim card stock really gave it a lift.
I then fussy cut the boots and the guitar. I am a little bit of a operfectionist and beacuse these items weren't in perspective, I tried to give a little perspective to them by layering.
I glued the guitar directly on to the pick up image and behind the boots.
The boots have been raised using dimenionals, to bring them forward a little more.

*TIPS: 

  1. To colour using markers just scribble the colour onto a clear block then pick up colour as needed with the aqua painters.
  2. When water colouring on thick whisper white you have to use a wet brush (but not dripping) and be as quick as possible. Do not rub back and forth but keep your brush moving in one direction.
