There has been a lot of watercolour put forth lately and I thought that I would give it a try with this sketch.
I started by fussy cutting out two feathers, at least I hope they look like feathers, onto watercolour paper. Then using various shades of the purple (although it came out pink) I washed the side of the feather and then did the same with the yellow on the opposite side. In order to give the feather a little more character I used the finest brush I had and gave it a vein down the centre with black.
I used the ink splotches from French Foliage and again my black ink and lightly accented the background.
I wanted to keep the background light and airy so that the feathers would be the centre of attention.
Although this card may appear a little girly I plan on giving it to my husband "just because" he has been killing me with "kindness" these past few weeks with everything that we have been trying to accomplish between looking after my Dad, both of our kids moving within a few weeks of each other and the multitude of other things we have been trying to accomplish. His words are always so encouraging and kind and I cherish each and every word.
I hope you like what I have come up with. What do you see, hear, think of this great inspiration photo. Show us your stuff and don't forget to join in on the fun over at House of Cards.
Thanks for stopping by.
