I made a card today using the technique taught at Make it Monday #189: Impression Line Water Coloring. I am also linking up to Simon Says Wednesday Thanks/Thanksgiving Challenge.
I used the In Bloom Impression Plate and my Inktense Pencils for the water coloring. I drew over all the impression lines with the pencil, then went over them with a water brush. Then, I went back and added more color inside the lines using more water to get a paler version of the same color. I started with the leaves and then moved on to the smaller flowers. By the time I got to the biggest flower, I had the technique down better, and I am most happy with how that flower came out.
I was not sure where to put a sentiment, because I did not want to cover up my biggest flower, so I cut the panel to a narrower width and had the sentiment go up the side of the card base. If my paper was not so warped, I would have popped this panel up, but I had to use lots of score tape to get it to lay flat. I think I will use water color paper next time.
