CC&S #330 – Keep Afloat

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

And here is my take:

Keep Afloat | by karen h @ carefree creations

I knew when I put these colors together I wanted to do some sort of nautical card. I decided to use two of the colors to create a scene (sun and water) and the third color to stamp everything else like a silhouette.

To make the background, I first squished the sea color onto the watercolor paper, then I dried it – to keep the blending to a minimum. When I did the sun squishing I did use a towel to pull up the green that was created where the colors met.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!
