Watercoloring with Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi Set


The other day I need a distraction from some DT work so I decided to make some cards for a few challenges. One I totally missed the cutoff, so one day I'll share that card. To make sure I get the other two in time I'm posting them today and tomorrow!! They are both done with the Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors! I've been in the watercolor mood lately!!

But, anyway I am entering this card in Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge - Sketch and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes. I went with Power Poppy's Sketch 1:

Instead of the notched banner, I went kind of an opposite notched banner or a banner that would fit in the notched banner. Anyway, it's what I found when I went through dies and figured it was close enough! I used the biggest die and the tiniest die to cut out some watercolor card stock.

Next, I stamped Catherine Scanlon - Arrangement by Art Gone Wild in brown ink. I've had this stamp for awhile and it finally has seen some ink!! Then I pulled out my Zig Kuretake watercolors and went to town color it.

While the panel dried I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Sketchy Banner Greetings (no longer available) on the tiny banner. I found some great pattern paper from Pink Paislee's Take Me Away pad and added it to a white card base.

Last I added my colored panel with foam tape and then added the sentiment on top similar to the sketch. Oh and I rounded the corners.

Thanks for stopping by!! I'll be back with another watercolor card tomorrow!!
