Voices of the Sea

Hello All,

For today I am entering a few challenges Freshly Made Sketches, Hand Stamped Sentiments, and Addicted to CAS. This card was a breeze to make.. More about that later, but for now here is my card for today, enjoy. 

Ombre effect was created using watercolor paper, water, and Brushos.
The more water I added to the color the lighter it became. 
I wrapped the panel with simple jute twine. It adds a lot of
texture and also grows on the sea theme.
A simple sentiment can speak volumes. This could be a card of encouragement, get well, or
just because. Either way that card has turned out beautifully. 
Challenges Entered:

  

Like I mentioned above this card was a cinch to make. First, I die-cut a wave cover plate and then spray mounted it on watercolor paper. I think this is essential because it seems to lock out any water from seeping in between the lines. I chose my colors and through blending and adding water I achieved the ombre effect. Lastly, remove the mask. And there is you panel. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. I feel refreshed from vacation and happy to be back in Blogland. If you are so inclined, please feel free to leave a comment. Until next time take care and happy crafting.

All the best,
Shawna

Very cool panel! Would not have thought adding more water would change the color that much. So glad you played with us on this challenge.
