This witch doctor card was yesterdays effort! I actually had a really productive weekend! I borrowed this little guy from Rachael and he was a blast to watercolour. To give you some idea how long it took to watercolour, I put Harry Potter 5 on a little bit after I started this guy (to listen to in the background) and I finished it about 10 minutes after the credits rolled.... that would have to be close to a record for me! I really set aside time when I watercolour to make sure I am happy with it and I was rather tired at the end this time!
I have been reading a few blogs that are REALLY great for ideas and MAN have I been learning HEAPS! You will notice in my posts (I have more to post but I will get around to them in the next few days) I have been experimenting with a few new ideas I have been learning from these girls... now though, I need to go practice, practice, practice!!
#1artist4highhopes was the inspiration behind this card. I love how she did the background of her witch doctor card... I need to practice a bit more I think! Oh... it pains me to see how wonderful her watercolouring is....!!! It's so good it hurts!
Artfully Ila is amazing... I love how she accents the images by using dots of acrylic paint! I have been trying it out and it really puts a whole new level to the image... it makes them really cute! Not to mention her whole layout of a card.... I'm SO jealous of her tallent!!
Michelle's watercolouring is fantastic! I have A LOT to learn from her! I encourage you to scroll down until you get to her sealife cards using High Hopes stamps.... CUTE!!
