Oh! well lets get on to the reason you are here. The Outlawz has a progressive challenge and my offering today is a mix of digital and water colouring, Yep! I have made a couple of cards with my water colouring AND on vellum AND wet and dry embossing. AND I quite like them too. LOL They are Poppies so are suitable for 2 sympathy cards I had to do today for friends who have lost their Father's.
The first I did was digitally colour on printable vellum. As it came out of the printer I noticed there was a lot of ink, I quickly found some clear embossing powder and embossed it all. I like the shine it gives to the sentiment and frame as well as the poppies.
I was lucky to win prize candy from Cindy recently and it came in the post yesterday, in with a mass of other lovely things, was an embossing folder, which I used to emboss the background card and the top of the vellum, (trying to match it up). Layered it with black paper, wrapped a ribbon around it and added it to the card. I did the same with the others, but used watercolour pencils on the back of the vellum. The vellum is only attached at the top, the wind wouldn't stop so they are shown flapping!
The first card is digitally coloured in PS the others are the watercolour cards.
