Love – Watercolor Two Ways

Another Case Study today, having lots of fun with Donna Mikasa’s cards.

Here’s my take:


Watercolor panel, mix of of Winsor & Newton Mauve and Cadmium Red Pale Hue.  The “love” script is with a custom blend of Manila and Gold Studio Calico Mister Huey’s mist.  I wanted it to show better than the gold would have by itself, and I think it lends to a really nice bronzy sort of gold.  A couple Kelly Purkey sequins finish.

And because I was just so inspired, I made another card:


Same paint colors – waste not want not – and brushed the lines across the strip of watercolor paper.  I just layered different hued hearts until I liked the look, then added some Dear Lizzy pink glitter Thickers.

Thanks for joining me today!
