It's Thursday, so you know what that means - yes, we are in the second week of the latest challenge over at Aud Sentiments! The challenges are always about having a sentiment on your project -it may be a specific sentiment or a theme, and this time you need to use a Spring or Easter Sentiment.
I chose a pretty flower stamp to use along with the sentiment " Refresh Renew Rejoice" as to me that is what spring is all about - flowers and the new!
I decided to have a go at some watercolouring, which I have not done for a long time - and as you will see definitely no expert! I used the Pebeo drawing gum to paint a mask over the flowers to that I could put in the blue watercolour background. Once dry the drawing gum looks like this.
You can then paint over it, and once all dry rub the blue gum off with your fingers to reveal the white paper and paint as normal. I had great fun with this, and although its far from perfect, I was pretty happy with the result!
Each challenge lasts two weeks, and this one is sponsored by Great Impressions
