Warm Winter Wishes


It's Anja here. I have another card for you using one of the new dies. This time I used different technique for coloring that I usually use. And this is the card that came out.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz die (Polar Bear Fishing),
- Zig Water color brushes (Numbers: 010, 302, 065, 038, 070, 050, 028, 044, 099, 093),
- white card base (15x15 cm),
- craft card stock for background (14x14 cm),
- white water color paper for die cuts,
- watercolor pencils (blue shades and white),
- water brush,
- wash tape,
- black pen,
- printed sentiment,
- heat gun,
- paper glue.

First I cut the bear. I used washi tape to adhere all the pieces on the back side. I find it easier to color if all the pieces are not apart.

Then I used watercolor brushes to color.

When I finished coloring the bear, I started on the background. This time I used watercolor pencils and craft card stock for background. First I colored the water. I used different shades of blue. When I was happy with the shade I used watercolor brush to blend all the colors together.

Then I did the sky. I used light blue and white pencil and watercolor brush for the end.

Then I printed and trimmed the sentiment. I adhered it on craft background first and then used it on card base.

And in the end I added the bear and my card was done.

Thank you for stopping by. I wish you all a lovely Sunday and see you again next week.
