Color splash


Hello.
Kate here today, and I have a card inspired buy our Color splash challenge sponsored by Ellen Hutson. 
You can see all of the design team samples and enter here.
I love the color splash challenges and I love seeing all the different way people are inspired by them.


I wanted to make a monochrome scene and just have one element of that scene to have color. 
What better sets to use than gleeful gardens and critters ever after.
I started by stamping some images directly onto my water colour card and then masked them and stamped some images. 
All images are stamped in black archival ink.


To colour the black I used just one black Inktense pencil and a water brush.
the black had to be coloured in a couple of layers and I let each one dry fully before adding more.
For the castle I used a pink clean color brush from zig along with the water colour brush. these pens really give a  nice vibrant color .
The sentiment was simple stamped straight onto the panel.
Once all the images were dry I added some wink of stella to the castle and the white parts of the mushrooms and also the stars.
Some sequins and gel pen dots and the card is finished.


Thanks for looking.
