Teal Duck

Today I worked with my Spectrum Noir Aqua markers and did a scene using images from the Gina K. Designs The Wetlands set which is illustrated by Theresa Momber. I really love all of Theresa's sets and how she makes her scenes. I hope I did her set justice with this one I made using her stamps.

I used water with my aqua markers so that the colors would appear lighter. I think this worked out well. I colored first and then used a wet brush to lighten them up. I am not sure if this is the right way to do it, but I found it worked for me.

I did not add a sentiment on purpose but there is an open space where one could be added. This can be an all occasion type of card design with a sentiment added or just leave it as is for a scene card,

The Cheery Lynn Dies used:
Card Maker's Stacker Nesting Dies ST 014 Rectangle A2 Size
Royal Scandinavian Boutique Stacker A2 Frame DL 313

This will be entered in the following challenges:
Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Challenge
Mod Squad Blog Challenge

Thanks for looking and I hope your weekend will be an awesome one.

God bless,
