A couple years ago I was invited to the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen. Part of the requirements is that you don’t post your DD creations on your blog (at least until 6 months after your 6-month term). When that time came around I wasn’t feeling like I should post them (my own hang-ups about the quality). Now another year later some of the cards are still my favorites and I want to post them (though I’m sure they will all get posted).
Here is the first one:
While I’m not overly in love with the coloring of the wizard, the background and sentiment still make me very happy!
Here are the notes I kept from when I first posted the card on Splitcoast:
To do the sentiment, I used a paint brush and some masking fluid (I don’t have one of those nifty masking pens – yet). I printed out my sentiment, placed it and my watercolor paper on a light table, lightly traced the letters in pencil, then traced with the masking fluid. After applying the distress inks and allowing them to dry, I rubbed off the masking and erased the pencil.
Each DD month has a theme. If you are a member of the Fan Club, you can view more details about this card and its relation to the challenere here.
Thanks for taking a peek!
