I couldn't resist this little fellow enjoying the rain from LOTV and the sentiment is really cute too. I used an acrylic block as a paint pallette and one of those water brushes to spread the colour.
Now watercolouring is not one of my favourite things - such a bummer that it's still so popular - but I do love how a tiny bit of water changes the colours so dramatically.
I used my Sakura gelly rol pens to highlight the raindrops and make them sparkle. And a strip of solid colour and a trio of pearls down the left just added a bit of oomph.
Stamp: LOTV, April Showers
Inks: SU,chocolate chip, pool party, pistachio pudding
Die: Paper Smooches, stitched
Embellishments:The Hobby House, chocolate heaven pearls
Now I know you're all going to enjoy this challenge, we always get a bumper crop when we ask for watercolouring. So I'm looking forward to seeing what you create and will try to learn rather than get downheartened.
So to keep my spirits up amongst all this rain I'm also sharing my February three photos of things that made me smile.
1: This photo arrived in my inbox of my two grandsons enjoying a bit of sunshine at half term in Tenerife. Spot the genuine fake designer watches bought from a street vendor - bit of a tradition to do this whilst on holiday - and the orange loving boy! Blogged here
2: The sun was shining so I got out and did a bit of tidying and weeding in the garden. And look what I found after clearing a patch of deadwood.
3: This poster seen on facebook really made me smile because this is just about exactly what I have been doing on many dismal dreary February afternoons.
Thanks for visiting today. And keep crafting!
