A pile of leaves created with a Copic multiliner 0.7. I like the random variation of line width in this design. I like that you know it was hand drawn.

30 Day Coloring Challenge – Day 4

Here is what I created using the Daniel Smith essential set of watercolors I swatched out yesterday together with some Distress Ink.  I also tried Arches hot press watercolor paper for the first time – very smooth!

I pounced alcohol inks in green and metallic gold on to Yupo paper.  I found the die cut leaves at Target and colored some of them with Distress. Putting some foam under the Yupo, I adhered it to some Neenah Desert Storm card stock. For the “thanks” sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, I used Ranger Carnation Red Archival Ink and experimented stamping it directly onto a piece of foam. The card is finished with an acorn accent from Little B.

Distress Test – Wood Leaves

Today I tested Distress Crayons and Inks on some leaves cut from wood. Some surfaces yielded better things than others.
