In Nature - Timeless Tuesday 226

Welcome back for another fabulous Timeless Tuesday Challenge.  Broni is our fabulous hostess this week and she is challenging you to use watercolors in your project or card.  Super fun challenge as this is definitely not something I do everyday. So, it was time to dust off my pencils!

My card is using the new Flourishes release of In Nature.  Such a wonderful masculine set, but also perfect for those who camp, kayak, boy scouts, or just have a cabin on the lake.


For my card, I whipped out my watercolor pencils that I have had by Milan with a few stragglers I have from Faber-Castille. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black on cold press watercolor paper.  I hit it for a moment with my heat gun just to set the ink before coloring it in with the pencils. I used my water pen brush as my blending tool and went section by section adding more color where needed.  I then cut the image out using my oval nesties to be popped up over the patterned paper by Basic Grey- Granola collection.  I sewed around the edges of the papers and added some twine and a button before adhering it to the base layer.  The sentiment is stamped directly onto the patterned paper.

We hope you join us this week in this challenge and don't forget to link it up with us! You could be the next winner of a fabulous prize! Thanks so much for popping in and be sure to check out what other beautiful creations the Timeless Tuesday Team have created!
