I 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!
