Hi everyone! It's time for a brand new palette at colourQ and I'm so excited by the card I made for this challenge. I recently signed up for a watercolor class for cardmakers and I've learned so many new things by watching the videos. The Friday Mashup challenge this weekend called for a bokeh technique and had a link to a video tutorial which combined bokeh with some watercoloring. I loved the look so much I used what I learned to make my colourQ card this week.
The background of my card is watercolored and made up of Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Old Olive. I swished the colors around to create an interesting, colorful background then once dry went back in with some white ink and sponged the circles to create the bokeh effect. I cut the sentiment die three times and glued them together to create a little dimension.
I mentioned yesterday that the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch inpsired me to make more than one card and this is the second one. The layout is so perfect for a million ideas though I've only got two now!
The ladies at colourQ have got some great ideas to show you using these colors. Check them out! Thanks for stopping by!
