I used pink and orange watercolors from my Zig Kuretake set to create the background. I like that shade of orange that was created where the two colors mixed. I thought this was a good colorful background for the Jane girl illustration from the Felicity Jane March kit. There's something so parisian and ooh-la-lat about her. I wanted a bold splash of color behind her.
You see that hard line of pink on the right side of the watercolor? That's a boo-boo. It happens when you use too much water and don't blot it right away. A hard line of color pools and you get that up there. I'm a rookie, so it happens. I left it though because even though technically it's a mistake I kind of like the way it looks.
I hand cut the roses from a Felicity Jane patterned paper to give her someplace to sit. A fancy little shelf. A stamped sentiment and some black wave washi complete the card.
I like cards because they're tiny canvases I can stretch my creative trials (and errors) on. They're a much smaller investment than a big 12x12 layout. And when I make mistakes like on this one, I roll with it and move on to the next canvas.
Thanks so much for stopping by. This week I'm focusing on painted butterflies, globes and some project life spreads I've made this month. Be back soon!
