August Club Cards

After being "off the air" for ten months, my blog is revived! Hopefully, I'll keep up with it better than I have! We had a fun kick off for the new year last month, so now it's time to hit the ground running.

The first card highlights the watercolor technique. I used watercolor paper and Stayz On ink to prevent the colored inks from running. I still need to practice with this technique and get better at shading. I CASEd this from SCS.

The second cards shows off a new technique I've learned - Faux Pearl. I think it turned out pretty good. I used Frost White Shimmer paint to achieve the "pearly" look in the flower.
