May Your Dreams Take Flight

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Dreams Take Flight | by karen @ carefree creations

At first I was a bit flummoxed with the sketch, but I soon came up with a few ideas (you may see the others later). I settled on the feathers because they were the most unique option.

I watercolored the background using distress inks and watercolor paper. This is quite a few layers of ink smooshing (I wanted it dark enough under the feathers that they would pop).

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love your non literal approach to the sketch, the feathers are perfect and layer beautifully to represent the sketch. Love the soft watercolour BG too. Very inspiring. Hugs Bev x
