Every month, on the 1st, I get twitchy for the new release from Clearly Besotted, and 1st October was a biggie, what with it being full of Christmas goodies. I may have indulged a little bit .....
This year all my cards are CAS for Christmas, that way I stand a vague chance of actually having enough ready in time - although sometimes the colouring is taking far longer that chucking a heap of embellishments in the air.
So for this one I used the Clearly Besotted Winter Plushies set (darn it, they are cute, and will be used a LOT), and teamed it with a sentiment from the Say It's Christmas sentiment set.
I painted the Plushies with Distress Inks (ReInkers). Recently I have changed my painting paper from Bristol Board to Langton Smooth Grain (a proper watercolour paper) - you might not have noticed the difference but I certainly have, especially as the Langton looks so cream against the white base card! That aside, it really has helped with moving the colour around the paper and getting a smoother grading. I may have to remake this card as I can see where I haven't been able to blend very well to get rid of the hard edges. It's all a learning curve huh.
Hugs to all
