Here's the final card I created at the Stampin' Up workshop I attended earlier this week. I spent a lot of time watercoloring this outdoor scene. It was very therapeutic!
I stamped the truck from Country Livin' onto a piece of watercolor paper, and using the masking technique, added pumpkins from Loads of Love and trees from Peaceful Pines. I went over the pines with a waterbrush to soften the color. I also used a Garden Green inkpad with the waterbrush to fill in the fluffier trees.
I had the most fun painting my truck with various inkpads and markers, all using a waterbrush. I stole the idea to shade my truck with Pumpkin Pie from another workshop attendee. The main truck color is Daffodil Delight, I think. I used Pumpkin Pie on the pumpkins and Soft Suede on the pumpkin stems and wooden truck sides. I used Smoky Slate and Basic Black on the tires.
I got my own idea to make the windows and headlights shiny using a VersaMarker and clear embossing powder. (thanks to the haunted jars card) I love how it looks! You can see it better in this close-up photo. There is just a bit of Smoky Slate shading underneath.
I mounted the watercolor panel on Tangerine Tango cardstock and wrapped Garden Green baker's twine around it, with a bow to secure it off-center. I adhered that to a Crushed Curry card base. I just now realized that I forgot to watercolor the sky. lol Oh well. It was fun to do!
