One of my favorite coloring mediums to use is watercolor. While I keep my watercolor use pretty controlled, I really like that it is also forgiving. Not quite perfection pairs perfectly with watercolor, which is great for me, considering I’m not an artist. I was wanting to play with some watercolor and then do a very mild bleeding with it. I thought the My Favorite Things Card Challenge Sketch 265 would be a good fit.
I modified the sketch a bit, I didn’t add the extra rectangles at the bottom and instead put a thread nest under my sentiment on vellum. I really like how the card finished – a tiny bit of free form color bleeding but still very controlled.
