Watercoloring with Tombows
This is another card I made during the watercoloring class taught by Krista Schneider. The lighting in this photo doesn't do the card justice. The contrast between the dark night sky and the snowy ground is really stunning in real life. One of the things we worked on during class was do not be afraid of using black! Actually, for my background I covered the area with dark blue and then blended black on top. It gives a really cool midnight effect. The snow beneath this shopper's feet has just a hint of blue in it.
The red background paper is a velvet paper. I've thoroughly enjoyed using the velvet papers. While this particular card isn't embossed, I do frequently run the velvet paper through my Cuttlebug folders and it gives a wonderful, rich appearance to the card.
I just came in from doing some Christmas shopping. Snowflakes are blowing around here today. Brrrrr...too soon and too cold for me but I have lots of packages that must be sent International so I have to get things packaged up.
Hope you had a lovely day.
