Good Monday Morning to you all, we are starting the week off very HOT and Humid but they are reassuring us we will have a few days this week that aren't so humid and in the 80's!!!
This week I would like to share some challenges my stamp group had last week, I wasn't able to do all the challenges as it was a busy week around here, but I did manage some of them.
Today I will start off the challenge I had for us to try, I found this video HERE that I loved the water color look of the background and it was done by using waterbased markers and since I am always trying to find new ways to use my Spectrum Aqua markers I thought I would give it a try. Now I wanted to have a little bigger area to work with so I used a Quart size bag and I really think I should have used a sandwich bag because the quart size is a bit stiffer material and I don't know that it worked as well, I wanted to try again with a sandwich bag but just didn't get the time.
I applied Moss and Rose Stem colors for my green in a checker board pattern on my bag, hoping to get a mix of greens not all one tone, doing the same for the browns I applied Sepia and Chocolate. I stamped the trees a couple times but didn't get great coverage on the watercolor paper so I ended up Stamping again with Distress Oxide in Walnut stain and embossed with clear powder and that helped it stand out more.
Inkadinkado- Fall trees stamp
Spectrum Aqua markers- Sepia, Chocolate, Moss and Rose stem for background
DCWV - Once upon a time background paper
I will try and post a challenge a day this week but I am not promising anything, so funny how life gets in the way :)
Have a terrific week and thanks for taking the time to stop by,
