Hello everyone and happy 4th of July to all those in the States!
I spent a part of my morning lazing, browsing and enjoying the sun. As I was browsing, I came across this new blog, it's a color challenge blog, where you are encouraged to use different types of media on a single project...... it's what I do all the time, mixing watercolors with markers and inks and pencils and of course I jumped right in..bid goodbye to the sun and head indoors for some mixed media crafting!
And here is what I came up with.....I went with Spectrum Noir markers and watercolors today.
I have been playing with my new Crafter's Companion stamps for the past couple of weeks and this is a set from their Crisalis Classics collections- The Rehearsal. I used Spectrum Noir markers to color in the image and watercolors to do the background .

Also I used a technique where we scribble a marker and spray rubbing alcohol on it to dilute it and then use a brush to apply the color . This makes it easy to fade the colors and achieve a more watercolor look. This tutorial can be found on the Spectrum Noir website.
