DT member Jo's Favorite Space with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush

Kuretake UK’s theme for September is “Space”.  Immediately dark skies, the moon, stars, planets spring to mind and I have made a project along these lines but then I needed something else and I thought of my favourite space – our caravan and the outdoors !

We have a caravan and I’m always itching to get out in it for trips away ! 
To make this card I firstly taped a piece of watercolour card to a piece of board using masking tape.  This stops the watercolour card from warping.
Next I painted the watercolour card with water and then painted the sky.  I colour on an acrylic block first of all and then add more water.  This gives a less intense colour and I find you can control your painting a little more using this method especially for large blocks of colour !!
I used the same technique for the grass
I then stamped the images onto a piece of watercolour card
I cut out the images ready for printing.  As I wanted a 3D look to this card I also stamped and cut out extra pieces of the caravan.
I then painted all the pieces.  This time I coloured the images with the pens and then blended out with the watercolour brush and kept going back adding more for depth of colour.
I die cut a cloud, added pale gray colouring and then stamped the sentiment.
I assembled the card raising pieces with foam tape and adding the extra pieces to the caravan. 
Here is my completed card !
I hope I have inspired you to think of your favourite “space” !

Thank’s for popping by !
