MFT Summer Camp Day 1 – Watercolor


MisplacedMojo.com MisplacedMojo.com

I’m making an effort to participate in MFT’s Summer Camp every day this week. I had so much fun with the first day’s event of watercolor, you may see more than one card from the effort! This card, using MFT’s Friends in the Forest, is my favorite!!! I used my 36 Gansai Tambi watercolors on Arches cold press paper to create a background freehand. I used greens to create loose trees, a pale blue wash for the sky, and blues and purples to create what I intended as snow drifts but it also kinda looks like a pond iced over. Either way, its a place for my critters to gather and share in the winter fun! I also used the same watercolor set to paint the stamped images, which were then fussy cut when dry and popped with varying thicknesses of foam tape. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and stamped directly on the card front, which I die cut with a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die. As a finishing touch I added Wink of Stella to the snow/ice, which is notoriously difficult to photograph! I’m hoping you can see it on one of the close up pictures. So frustrating!!! I debated about flicking white paint for falling snow and couldn’t bring myself to do it for fear of messing it up! This was so much fun to create!!! I made multiple backgrounds while I had the paint and watercolor paper out so I’m going to see what else I can pull together this week!

I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:
