Hello Quick Quotes Readers! Alicia here today to host the November Challenge:
"Things with Wings"
When I contemplated this challenge, I thought it is November, ya know, turkeys....well, when it came down to making a turkey it just didn't fly! My creative mojo took a different directions especially after I tried a new tool with my PowderPuff Chalk Inks. I purchased a water brush (detailed tip) a while ago with a coupon from Michael's. I put it with my other blending implements and had never really tried it. When I finally picked it up and used it, I was astounded at my results. This is not like a "blending" technique, instead, this transforms your chalking ink and makes it into a watercolor type of paint! I am so pleased with these results.
I tried two different styles with the two cards I made for you today. If you don't have this tool, don't worry, you can achieve the results by using a paintbrush along with your PowderPuff Chalking Inks.
On the first card, I stamped and embossed an image then used a variety of Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking Inks to color in the details. The colors came out very true and rich. I fussy cut the image and popped it up on the lovely Farmhouse 104 paper. I added a layer of clear Wink of Stella to the wings although it doesn't show t0o well in this photo.
Here I am in the process of painting with my new brush:
