Sandpipers

 

SU only Challenge wants to see watercolouring.

 

 

 

My card is slightly unusual in that I used bleach to remove colour from the navy background.

However as I was still using a paintbrush and water (albeit with a spot of bleach!) to give a different colour I think it still fits the bill for 'watercolouring'!

 

 

This time last week I was gardening in a T shirt and sweltering in gorgeous sunshine ...

This week I'm donning wellies, scarf, hat and anorak to coax the dog out for a walk in the pouring rain.

Oh the vagaries of the English weather!

  1. It's a lovely and very striking card Lindsey. I see you went OUT of your comfort zone and added your IN COMFORT ZONE square to an oblong design! Well done that woman!

  2. Wahou ! Comme c'est beau ! Une scène si paisible et délicate. J'adore admirer ces oiseaux à marée basse qui se délectent de tous les petits vers et autres qui sortent du sable mouillé ! Ta technique rend super bien, je l'avais vu dans un post de Jennifer McG mais quand j'ai essayé ça ne rendait pas super. J'imagine que je n'ai pas mis assez d'eau de javel. Par contre toi c'est splendide ! As-tu teinté ton fond avec de l'encre distress avant ou c'est du papier bleu que tu avais et que tu as décoloré avec cette technique ? Une superbe carte pour un homme. Merci de partager !
