Hop Order:

My projects today features Life and Lemons.  I stepped away from my Copics for today’s projects.

The first card is clean and simple using polychromos pencils on kraft.

  • I used Neenah Dessert Storm paper and colored the image up with my Polychromos colored pencils.
  • Since it is supposed to be a clear jar, I used versamark for the outline image and heat set it before I colored it.
  • To finish my card, I went back and used the sentiment and lemon slice to fill in the background using Versamark for a tone on tone look. I highlighted with a little white watercolor acrylic paint to make the jar look more “glass-like”.

My second card today is a simple watercolor card.

  • I used Canson watercolor paper for this one a
  • I put distress ink on an acrylic block, misted it, and stamped it onto water color paper
  • I ink smooshed ona scrap piece of watercolor paper with shades of yellow in one spot and shades of green in another. I stamped the leaves with the darkest green in the green area and the lemon with the darkest shade of yellow on the yellow area – this gave me natural shading…
  • I fussy cut the lemon and leaves and adhered the to my card with foam tape for dimension.
  • With Versafine Black Onyx Ink, I stamped the sentiment.

Now it is time to hop on and see what the incredibly talented Monika Davis has for you!
