Hello all and happy Monday!
I'm here to share my first ever slider card. In the past, I have hesitated to make one as I thought it would be difficult and/or time consuming. ..but au contraire, mon frère! It was a ton of fun and I thought it the perfect opportunity to make a cute little nautical scene using the gorgeous color palette from the ColourQ Challenge #349
And, I finally inked up my What the Doodle:Waves set from PTI. I thought it would be super cute and fun to have the boat from the set seem as though it's riding the heat embossed /watercolored waves.
I colored both the boat and the waves with a combination of Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens (022 Carmine Red, 024 Wine Red, 092 Blue Gray, 042 Turquoise Green) and Akashiya Sais ( unfortunately the names are not in English but I used a "cloudy blue, bright red, light blue and dark gray).
I put down a wash of color starting with my darkest colors and "pulled them out" to the lighter areas. I then waited a bit of time for it dry (not completely, still "moist") and went back in with more colors, building upon the first layer.
I'm also entering this card into the now returned (YAAAAAAAAAY!) Virginia's View Challenge #22 (Summer) As you may have already deduced from my 'exuberant' yaaaay, I'm super stoked it's back! :) hehe! My card fits the coloring/ink blending and (I think) color-layering criteria. There is a TON of beautiful inspiration on the site, so be sure to check it out!
And I'm also submitting this card into Kathy's super-fun 30 Day-Coloring Challenge! Her work is always so inspiring!
