Happy Tuesday!! In this adventure Fishing Popcorn is hanging out at the lake letting his love know that he is hooked on her. Here's what I did to make this little scene.
- Stamped fishing bear image onto watercolor paper.
- Scribbled markers onto piece of plastic. Picked up color with water brush and painted image. After he dried. I cut him out.
- I hand drew the dock onto watercolor paper, allowing for a boarder. I drew with pencil first and then went over it with a black permanent pen. I then erased the pencil lines.
- I used a metal ruler and craft knife to cute out the inside of my frame, around the dock.
- I used the markers direct to the rubber stamp and added fish randomly around the whole frame.
- For the background, I used a circle mask and straight line mask. I covered the lower part of the background across half of the circle for the sunset and used the coloring method as in step 2 to paint the sky. I used a wide tip water brush and stroked horizontal, skipping spaces to give the illusion of clouds. Allowed the top to dry.
- Next, I masked the top and painted in the water, using the same horizontal stoke. Allowed it to dry completely.
- I painted the dock while the background was drying.
- I then painted in the sun and sun's reflection in the water.
- Next, I stamped the fish and painted in a little color.
- Stamped the sentiment and drew in some little water ripples around the dock.
- Adhered the little scene onto the background. Adhered fishing bear and drew in his fishing line.
- I carried the theme forward on the inside of the card. TIP: If you use only a small amount of water and a heavier card stock, you can water color on regular card stock.
- Adhere the background to the base card and it's ready!
