I have another cute Scooter card for you today. Once again I watercoloured, this time with distress inks. I think this is my favourite set from the release; what’s not to like about a canine mariachi band?
I stamped some images with soft stone ink then painted with distress inks. Other images, including the hedgehog I stamped in brown distress inks and blended them to fill the image. I painted the background with distress inks smooshed and diluted on my glass mat.
The second card I stamped in antique linen distress inks and stamped on masking paper also so I could create the scene with cacti in the background and one musician behind another.
I painted with peerless watercolour paints and added gold details with a gel pen. I used the masks a second time so I could blend ink over the background.
These Scooter scenes were definitely a departure from my nature (and book) themed projects but as a friend said to my yesterday, ‘always good to step out of your comfort zone!’
You have been stepping out of you comfort zone a lot lately and I love the results! You have such well rounded techniques that we all get to see now.
I love these two fun cards Heather with Scooter and friends in Mexican mode and two brilliant backgrounds too. x
You seem to be able to turn any stamp into a watercolor painting and this is no exception. Love the theme as well as the brilliant colors. I even noticed you managed to shade the striped poncho! These are just too fun!
Oh my goodness … these are adorable, Heather. I love how you’ve made them so different in the two cards. Just catching up and saw your other cards using the Scooter images. Great work!! xx
