So did yall have a great week? I was sooo super busy at work, I'm sorry I didn't post like normal. Hopefully I'll be able to get some stuff made this weekend to share with you next week. Fingers crossed!
It's Saturday, and you know what that means, right? Yep! It's time for me to mess up another Sketch for You to Try! Not the card, mind you, but what would SFYTT be without me re-creating my own version of the sketch? *wink*
I was in the mood to watercolor, and wanted to play with my Rubber Romance Divas, who haven't been loved in a while. Here's what I came up with!
How cute is she with that sentiment?? I saw it at Inky Antics and had to have it to go with my divas and my Bellas. Perfect, huh? I looked and looked to tell you which Diva this was, but I couldn't find her online anywhere. Anyone know her name? ETA: FIONA!!!!!!! Thanks, Robin!
I had a blast watercoloring her! I used my waterbrush & reinkers, but also used my Stampin' Up markers...boy was that easier than I remember! I tried it a long time ago and just made a mess, but it was really fun. There's a great tutorial on Splitcoast, which you can find HERE.
The biggest hint is to let your image dry COMPLETELY in between adding colors and shading, and remove excess ink from your waterbrush before coloring. Too much water = big messy blob. Try it, you'll like it!
Anywho, you can see the real sketch on Jen's blog, along with Sarah's sample. And then don't forget to check out Amy, Carole, & Susan's versions. If you upload to SCS, make sure to use the keyword SFYTT so we can all check out your work!
Have a great weekend!
