Watercoloring Wow!

Img_5407_copyI tried a little bit different spin on watercoloring last night!  I used three different colors on this bird from natural beauty.  First, I colored him in with Cool Caribbean.  I then added Temping Turquoise and Taken with Teal as shadow color.  By starting with the lightest color and working my way darker I was able to get a very nice shaded image!  I  used to do watercoloring techniques with just one ink or watercolor crayon color but what I've learned more recently is that it's actually easier to get shading when you use 2-4 different colors! 

This little tri-fold card was not my original design, I CASE'd it from Karen who demoed this card at the Canadian Stampin' Girls Convention that I attended recently.  It was just so cute and such a great color combination (love that mustard with the teals) that I had to make one for myself! 

I changed the inside from the original and have posted the inside below for you to see.  Enjoy!Img_5405_copy
