The theme of today’s challenge at Incy Wincy Designs is being on the Wild Side. It could be something created outside your usual or something about wild animals. The image I chose from our sponsor for this challenge, Rick St. Dennis, is Aloha Nui. It reminds me of the Disney character, Moana, one of my youngest son’s favorite. I could have created a card with marine animals with the girl image but I don’t have any marine animal stamps or images. So, I am creating something out of my comfort zone.
I am not a free hand artist, and a free hand paint artist for that matter. But I decided to challenge myself to create a beach back drop for the Hawaiian girl. I watched a couple of You Tube videos, just to give me an idea on how to create one. I used the Gansai Tambi watercolors for this project. I added detailing to the painted trees using Prismacolor Color Pencils. I trimmed this to fit a top folding A2 card.
I printed the image on Neenah white cardstock. I colored the image using Prismacolor Color pencils. I could not believe how well I did with blending the colors this time. I did not even use the blender pen on this one. I think the type of paper in coloring, for whatever medium, matters a lot. From now on, Neenah will be my go to paper for Prismacolor coloring.
I fuzzy cut the image after coloring it. I added shimmer to the flowers using a clear Spectrum Noir shimmer pen.
I watercolored another piece of Canson watercolor paper to create a ground for the image as I layer it. I die cut this panel using Lawn Fawn Hill Side border but used the non-stitched side of the cut border. The sentiment is from different stamp sets, Hampton Art and Avery Elle. I stamped this using Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed it with clear powder. I adhered this to the watercolor panel using foam adhesive. I adhered the image with foam adhesive, too.
Thanks for viewing my blog. I hope you join us in our new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. I cannot see what Wild Side you create.
