30.03.2018....No Line Water-Coloring.....
I got some pan water colors a while back and decided to try them out.
I have tried this technique a couple times previously with other watercolors and was pleased....this time....not so much! It was a hot mess!
The colors were less intense and less rich....the paint did not flow and quite frankly was more water than color. It was a lot of work- repeatedly painting over and over to get a good base of color, which distorted the images greatly and wreaked havoc on the watercolor paper. There were a couple iridescent colors in the tray and I decided to try them on the flower centers and they were TERRIBLE!
So....the point of this post....ALWAYS try something...(it is just a piece of paper) but DON'T freak out when it does not turn out. Am I proud of this card....absolutely not! Will I use this card- no.
Why am I showing this card...to show you that everyone screws up and has disasters when card-making. Will I try painting with watercolor paints on a card again? ABSOLUTELY!!!...but not with these paints....they are GARBAGE. LOL!
Have a beautiful Easter holiday- may you be blessed and surrounded by family and friends.
Inky huggs til next week!
