TIOT - Watercolour

Good Morning folks. Today is my last TIOT (Try It Out Tuesday)for Susanas Custom Art and Card Design. It has been a real pleasure to work with the lovely girls on the DT. They have made me feel so welcome. Thanks so much for having me on board this month.

Suzanne from Scrap Bitz set us the challenge of watercolouring. I decided to use Isaac and his skateboard as I needed to make a card for my Son's birthday next week and he has asked for a skateboard!! Thanks Anki for this fabulous image :) I coloured him with a mixture of distress inks and SU markers which I used with a waterbrush. The skateboard has a layer of gloss on it for a bit of dimension.

I have used Basic Grey recess papers which are wonderful to fall back on for a boys card. I am not entirely happy with the layout of this card..I just couldn't get it all to work together. Some cards just happen really quickly and others takes hours of playing and pulling things apart then putting them back together..well this is one of them! But I know my son, Jude will love it!
You can check out the other girls watercolouring on the store blog Follow your Heart. There are some beautiful cards and fabulous inspiration.

Hope you all have a great day,

What are you talking about I love it. It's a wonderful boys birthday card. The colours you choose are masculine and fun, great image, love the stars, the twine is a wonderful embellishment. It's funny how we are our own worse critic. It's one of the best boy cards I've seen!
Have a wonderful day,

Take care,
