Over at Make it Crafty we are having a challenge this month to color an image with our choice of medium but to make it look like it was watercolored. Sounds easy right?
Well, at first I tried coloring with Copics and thought it looked like it was watercolored …. until I watercolored the background. Here is my first try. I like the color of the roses but it definitely does not look watercolored.
I decided that I really needed to try to watercolor so I could see what it should look like. I pulled out my distress inks and my water brush and started again. This is the finished one.
I like both of them but really like how the true watercolored image turned out.
There is still time to enter our challenge so come on over and check it out!
