Eat Play Sleep.
It seems that is what I am doing these days, Eating, Playing and Sleeping. Needless to say like everyone, I look forward to the day that we all can change that.
I made this card to enter in a challenge over CAS Watercolour Clean and Simple Card Challenge, which is to paint a Night Sky.
To paint my sky I used my watercolour palette. Most people go for Indigo to get the deepness of a night sky, but I a) don’t like how flat Indigo can be, and b) find that most night skies are lighter near cities due to the City lights and it is a prettier blue than the deepness of Indigo.
My personal preference is to let my layers of paint dry between colours. I find the paper does not buckle as badly as when I use a heat gun.
To paint I used Arches Cold Press 140lb Watercolour Paper and Schmincke Watercolours. My first layer is Cobalt Turquoise. Once dry I did a layer of Frence Ultra-marine Blue. I then added in Delft Blue, which I love for night skies. Once dry I added a second layer, with heavier paint in a few areas.
Again I waited for everything to dry completely before proceeding.
In my mini Misti I stamped and heat embossed in gold my sentiment, Eat Play Sleep, so fitting. I then did the splatters,and stamped the trees using VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne and let the piece dry overnight before attaching to my card base using Gina K. Design White Heavy Cardstock.
I then drew the gold border using my EK Success Gold Pen.
