To create my water scene, I used a large paint brush, water and several blue shades of Catherine Pooler inks onto a panel of TH watercolour card. For the wavy effect, I 'stamped' onto my dried panel using the waves stencil by SSS that I had spritzed with water. I framed my scene using a stitched circle die (SSS) and adhered the manatee behind two strips of vellum. The fish were coloured in using Inktense pencils and a damp paintbrush and then fussy cut. The hat was also coloured in using Inktense pencils and then die cut. For the sentiment, I masked off the 'birthday' part before stamping.
I'm playing at:
CAS Watercolour - Ocean
ABNH - Summertime fun
ATSM - #287 Make your mark
I'm also sharing my card at Kathy's 30 day colouring challenge
