It’s Watercolor Wednesday! Today we’re following along with a video by Sanday Allnock. I really enjoyed watching Sandy’s video. I could watch her make cards all day long. She is just amazing. I enjoyed making this card, but it took a scary turn this morning. Everything started out alright. I decided to finally ink up this adorable hedgehog to go inside my glass ornament. Watercoloring the ornament and background went pretty well. I did get some muddy color and my bokeh is a little wonky. Most of all my ornament is not perfectly round because she said that I should work fast so it would be wet enough to lift the color for the bokeh. So I rushed that background quite a bit. I was too lazy to watercolor the greenery at the top. Plus, I have this gorgeous Winter Bouquet stamp set that I won from Rubbernecker last year and it deserved some love today. So I stamped all that greenery and then I added white enamel accents for berries. That’s when I almost died. The white berries ran together to form big old blobs.
ACK! What was I thinking? I had to just walk away and let them dry in the hopes that I could peel them off and save my card. Tonight, I peeled off the white berries and punched and burnished some little red berries. Phew! A little too symmetrical for my taste, but I’m pretty happy with the result of this “cute little Christmas” card.
