MFT Camp Create – Wonderful Watercolor – Sunny Smiles Card

Well, I managed to get one post done. Let’s hope the rest roll smoothly.

Day three at the MFT Camp Create summer camp crafting tent focused on Wonderful Watercolor. And Virginia’s View still has the All About Colors Challenge going on.

This was my first time trying to do a fine watercolor with my Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens… I still need MUCH more practice with watercolors, but here’s the finished product:

I love Frangipanis! They’re so exotic and make me think of travelling to Hawaii and the Orient. Here in Florida, they’re mostly yellow and white. In South America we had more pink/orange/yellow, like these. I also fell in love with the bright and colorful toucans in South America. The ones I came across were quite gregarious and would follow you if you walked away. This stamp set just makes me smile with fond memories! : )

I am very thankful that I have a Tombow Mono Sand Eraser… a couple of times I had disasters where my colors bled terribly out into the background. After panicking, I blotted the area and, when dry, used the eraser — you can hardly tell where the spots are – and, no, it’s not where the sentiment is… that actually looks fine in real life… don’t know why it looks funky in the pic — crazy!

Badge #3 earned!
