Less is MoreChallenge #317

Cherish the simple Pleasures

Pulled out an old stamp set from Gina K called Spring has Sprung and picked this cute duck sailing away to colour. We are heading for cooler weather while you are into spring so it seemed the perfect image  to use. I am still having fun with watercolour but used my new Zig clean colour brush markers. They are different to work with but used a hot pressed watercolour paper that is smoother and I seem to be getting the hang of it. I guess it just needs more practise.  The image is cut with a spellbinders circle die and the waves are a stencil from Simon says stamps. I made the sentiment in Photoshop as I wanted it to follow the curve of the waves then hand cut it out in a banner shape.


I am entering it in the challenge below.

  1. Fabulous! I love the way you have used the sketch to show that cute duck riding the waves :) It looks like you have got the hang of zig markers perfectly with the gorgeous colouring you have done here and the curve of your sentiment is a nice touch too. Thank you for playing along with us at Less is More :)
