Hi, its my turn to post over on the Tando blog today.
A new thing for 2016 was to have a regular technique week. Tando products are so versatile and this give us, as a DT, the opportunity to show how our techniques work with various products.
The technique this week is watercolour. I do love my watercolour pencils, but, obviously they weren't going to be any good on naked chipboard - but, I did have a lovely travel set of watercolours which hadn't seen the light of day - so, I decided to use those and made this:-
The base is one of the long tags, which are a recent Tando release. I gessoed the base and then added some acrylic paint, once dry I added some stencilling and doodling to my background. I then stamped my flowers and heat embossed with white embossing powder (which is something I took from a recent workshop at Birds in the Barn with Kay Carley). I then added some white watercolour paint to the petals, once dry I then watercolored them. The mini butterflies had a layer of white paint and then several different layers of red paint…all just to try and add some depth to the wings. The butterflies were then doodled before a little white pen shading was added.
Pop on over to the Tando this week for some more watercolour projects.
