The Compendium of Curiosities challenge over at Linda Ledbetter’s continues! (We will be doing this for a very long time.) This time we’re turning to page 39 and learning to watercolor with Distress Markers. How fun is that? I can answer that right now: TONS of fun. Tons of it.
I thought it would be fun to use the technique on one small part of the overall composition, so that it would really stand out against mostly neutral other colors.
I like the way the wing turned out, but decided to make it even more interesting by adding a thick layer of Rock Candy crackle paint. Not only does it make the wing look more organic, but it made the paper more flexible so I could shape the wing and pop it off the tag with some foam dots.
Now can’t you just imagine this pretty lady at about 3″ tall, flitting about in the summer flowers?
