How wet can you get?

Today while I was working on a practice painting for the Fresh Florals class, I decided to test a new paper, Crane’s Lettra, 110C in Pearl White. I was not sure how much water it could take so I was careful not to saturate the surface. This paper is 100% cotton and it took the water I did use beautifully so in my next test I will not hold back on the water.

30 Day Coloring Challenge – Day 7

This is a wet-on-dry technique taught by Jennifer Rzasa in the Watercolor for Card Makers: Intermediate Techniques. Arches hot pressed 14o lb and Daniel Smith watercolors.  I would like to try this again with a bigger brush for a looser feel.

Copics in Distress – Rose 2

I love this Tim Holtz Rose 2 Rubber Stamp from Stampers Anonymous. I colored the roses and foliage with Copic markers (RV11, RV32, RV34, YG03, YG17, YG67), heat set the image and then went over everything with Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Victorian Velvet, Twisted Citron).  I finished it off with some water spritzing.
