mft sketch challenge 613

Do you need a little mid-week creative jumpstart? Me too lol, so I suggest the Wednesday Sketch Challenge over on the MFT Stamps blog

I love these challenges for making me feel really creative! And when the card design is already done for you, you have the brain space for other things like trying new products. Hello Distress Watercolor Pencils!

Here's the sketch...

And here's what I made...
I started by masking a piece of smooth watercolor cardstock to match the sketch. Then I blended a little light pink ink in the masked rectangle spaces.
After removing the washi tape, I stamped one of the flowers from the Pretty Poinsettias set in a pale ink for no-line coloring.
And then it was time to play with my new Distress Watercolor Pencils!!!

Let me just say that I think I love these pencils but we can talk more about that later, lol! For this card, I used three colors Candied Apple, Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry. I colored part of each petal and then blended with a wet paint brush.
I probably should have called it after the fist layer of color but I was having so much fun that I did three. Not only are the pencils fab but this was the first time I tried a no-line technique with the Pretty Poinsettias and I.LOVE.IT!

You can learn more about the sketch challenge over on the MFT Stamps blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
