Shopping Tilda

After a little bit of reassurance from my watercolouring friends, I've decided to share a card I made over the weekend where I watercoloured the image - OMG - yes - watercoloured!

Most of you know that I am a Copic girl, through and through! I've never been very good at watercolouring, it requires patience :) But sometimes I just want to paint, so on the weekend, that is what I did. I actually painted two images.  This one is Shopping Tilda from the Bon Voyage collection.


Tilda's skin looks a little olive as I painted in Vintage Photo... I only have four DI's so made do with some Stampin Up inks I had in my drawer. I need to get a few more colours of DIs if I want to paint more.  The papers are Prima Annalee (yup, again!).

So yes, something a little different from me today! I'm feeling brave so wanted to share :)
If I get a card done with the other image I've painted  might show you. Its nice to try something a bit different for a change.

Thanks for checking in with me today!
Hugs Kylie xx

Hi for only having 4 colours this is super. I love the light reflected on her top and how you have done the grass. I think sometimes doing something different challenges you more and you get better results in the end. Kitty :P

Oh wow, i would swear that you had been watercolouring for ever, this looks freakin' awesome!!! It almost makes me want to get out my stuff and have a go... but I am way too impatient to go back to watercolouring now I can whip up something in half the time with copics, bahahaha!!
Honey, you are way too talented, it's not fair on the rest of us :)
