Addicted to CAS, CAS Mix Up, ColourQ, Time Out


Hi crafting friends, I hope you had a good weekend!

My card today was made using markers in a few different ways. I created the background using SU! markers scribbled onto an acrylic block, lightly misted with water and stamped onto watercolour card. The colours were blended a little with an aqua brush.

The lighthouse was stamped in black, the stripes added with a stamp inked with a red SU! marker,  grey highlights added with a Promarker and fussy-cut out. Everything is arranged around a die-cut oval.

The background is a bit "looser" than I would have liked but it's my third attempt. I need more practice and if you know a good online watercolour class, please let me know!

The colours are from the ColourQ selection (Real Red, Basic Grey, Marina Mist and Island Indigo).

What a fabulous ocean scene, Sue ... love that bold lighthouse set on the rocky outcrop ... and that watercoloured sky is gorgeous! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

PS Not that you need it given that lovely background, but you asked about classes ... there's a range of watercolour ones at Online Card Classes ... they're always brilliant!
