This week's challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is to make a Action/Movement card. Okay, well my trashcan is now full of ripped up cards. I guess I am not someone who likes to try new things! This card was cut with the Silhouette and the Silhouette was not behaving itself. The card actually does work, though. I am happy with that. The background digital paper is from Echo Park. I do love the lettering!
I also tried watercolor pencils again this week. My husband gave me an okay to buy a set of Derwent Intense Ink pencils as an anniversary gift. We're married 38 years this month. I have been watching some videos on their use. I figured, because they are so pricey, I would try my Prismacolor watercolor pencils again first. The results were not good! I decided the Derwent pencils would probably sit and go unused so I decided not to buy them. I wish I would have done that with my Distressed Inks. I see absolutely gorgeous images done with them. When I try it looks like a first grader did the painting. I don't really know what I'm doing wrong. The color just doesn't seem to spread like it does in the videos. Anybody want to come to the Arizona desert during our gorgeous summer weather and give me some lessons?
