Spring Card Camp 2 Day 14

Today’s tutorial was presented by Debby Hughes.  I would love to be able to watercolour just like her.  Perfect realism with wonderful muted colours that I am so drawn toward.  To my surprise though, the video was about “winging it” with no or minimal supplies to produce a child-like project.

This style is soooo far outside my comfort zone, that I was literally cringing as I made this card.  I had immediately thought of this Spellbinder’s Large die of the Month kit that I had, well, because I had received it as part of my Value Club kit and thought that I would never use it.  It did serve to make me feel less guilty about owning it though,when I actually used it.  Debby was wondering what type of palette the students would use.  She used her more usual muted palette even though she was making a rainbow, but wondered if others would choose a more traditional palette.  I decided to use bright Colorburst watercolour, as I felt this was going to be a totally uncontrolled project and Colorburst is pretty much uncontrollable too, so it would fit.

At first, I thought this card would go to the big round file as soon as I posted it, but it is growing on me.  I think two of my granddaughters would like and appreciate the rainbows and bright colours.  In fact, maybe we will have a cardmaking session when this scourge is over, and make some rainbow cards together!
