CAS(E) this sketch #67

Two Tags Heather Telford

I rarely participate in sketch challenges but here I am playing along with CAS(E) this sketch for the second week in a row. I had several watercoloured tags lying around that had been completed a while ago so I chose the rose and map one for this card. I stamped the same tag on the card base in Memento Desert Sand then masked the edge. I had my camera handy so photographed the next step. (It was only after I had taken two photos that I realized I had no photos of the tag painting process which is probably what you are more interested in!)

I sponged around the edges of the masked area then crumpled up a piece and used it to stamp more Desert Sand ink around the edges.

Before removing the masks I drew around the edge with a Faber-Castell watercolour pencil and blended it with a waterbrush.

Now for the hard part. I don’t exactly remember how I did the tag way back when. I think I must have stamped the tag with Versafine Onyx Black because the image hasn’t bled at all. Then I probably wet the watercolour paper and started adding colour. Not sure what the inks were… Sorry about the lack of information; I am now trying to remember to take notes as I create in case it is a while before I finish a project or write a post.

    Love this! How you added the tag without color to the background is really neat. And, because of you, I have a new stamp in my collection. I just had to have Glory of Modesty! Thanks for always making me think and revisit my creative process.

    I was intrigued by this particular sketch, as well… I love how you’ve done the monochromatic tag with the gorgeously painted one. The background sponging is also perfect. Beautiful!

    Great card, Heather. Love the contrast of the background and the tag in the front.
