Swingin'

I'm back again :)


So, if you're looking for my Tiddly Inks card, that's in the post under this one. Otherwise, I'm afraid I'm going to show another of the newest releases, Robertos Swingin' from C.C.Designs. This cutie will be available at 12 Noon, EST, on Thursday. Just sayin'.

A few weeks ago, I played around with painting a background with Copic Re-Inkers and a Waterbrush loaded with Colourless Blender. It didn't look too bad, but, in my wisdom, when I finished, I decided to swoosh over the whole lot with Colourless Blender, and then lost all the texture. Doh. (This is not what I said at the time.) Anyway, I decided if I wanted to create a watercolour background, I might as well have a go at smooshing some watercolours around. I have long been a fan of the beautiful scenes my lovely friend, Delphine, does. Watercolours, Pencils, Pastels, Copics, she does the lot! 


If Delphine doesn't fill you with inspiration, there's a Watercoloured Background Tutorial at Kit and Clowder at the moment...
