water colour love

i am having laods of fun playing with the sanded pencil technique
this involves using my water colour pencils
 and softly rubbing them against sand paper 
to produce a fine coloured dust 
that gets moved over wet water colour paper.
 i made this card today using that technique and inspired by a challenge over at just add ink to use watercolours
 it is made using the square punch and the corner punch mainly 
with the heart from the owl punch 
and the love die from the embellishments framelits.
 can you see the cool texture that the dust particles leave on the paper?

keep your eyes peeled for another card coming soon using the same technique

cheers ears

What a cool technique Clare. So random and so textural. The panels look really striking contrasted against the white. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.
