For today I am going to be playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch and Addicted to CAS. Here is my watercolor card for today, enjoy.
|Yes, you heard (or read) that correctly.|
This panel is made up of only black cardstock, tube of watercolors,
|what I really love about this card are the colors are not fully blended. It is very streaky and graphic.|
I would have never thought watercolor could be so beautiful on black paper.
|The mixture and texture of colors are remarkable.|
The sentiment says it all, it took courage to get this card started.
I know I said it in the captions but seriously I never thought this was possible until I saw a YouTube video that surfaced in my feed about a year and a half ago. I saw this artist applying watercolor on black paper. I thought there wasn't a chance this would work so I put it in my mental storage box. Then I saw rainbow themed challenges and wanted to do something different with the trusty rainbow. I pulled out my mental storage box and remembered this technique. So, gave it a try. I gave a tentative brush stroke, and my mind was officially blown. In my personal, and humble, opinion the result is magnificent.
Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon, but until then take care and happy stamping.
All the best,
