Sweet Daisies for CCIIDT.

Hello to everone.  I am sharing my DT card for Crafter's Companion IIDT.   
This week I have been having another play with the fabulous Spectrum Aqua markers. 
 I started by stamping and embossing the image onto my card and covering with Pebeo Drawing Gum.   This really is fabulous and is so easy to remove when your background is painted.   
I then applied the markers to a flat stamp mount, spritzed with water and applied to my watercolour card.  It gave the fabulous effect you can see below. 
 I filled in any colour gaps with a sponge and inks left on the stamp mount. Splatter with gesso.  Remove the drawing gum from the image.  Lots of messy fun. 


List of materials used to make this card:
Spectrum Aqua markers used: Aquamarine, Teal, Meadow, Bud Green, Sunflower, Gold, Fawn, Slate.
Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Sketchy Stamp Set - Poppies and Daisies Stamp.
Crafter's Companion Diesire Embossalicious Folder.
Crafter's Companion Kraft Card.
Crafter's Companion Watercolour card.

Pebeo Drawing Gum Masking Fluid - 45ml

Crafters Companion Fresh Blue - Centura Pearl A4 Printable Card Pack (10 sheets)

Cheery Lynn Circle die.
White glitter embossing powder, gesso for white splatter detail.
Twine, bling and heart charm all from my stash.

This is so beautiful Laine and those colours really appeal to me (they are my summer wardrobe colours!!) who would have thought that a beautiful landscape could emerge from water colour pens. I really must get mine out and have a play!! xx

Fab card Laine, love that watercolour effect. I have a few aqua markers got them free, but haven't used them yet. Don't know what to do with them exactly, that's why.
