Blocked bells

Debra Burgin Bells 1Here’s a second attempt at the sketch and color challenge for this month, as seen in my monthly newsletter.  (Click here to subscribe!)

I put away the watercoloring for November’s camp projects, and I missed it sorely!  So I did just a bit here on our wonderful Watercolor Paper.  I did some serious “smooching” on this image as well as on the card base.  It’s a challenge for me to capture the shimmer in a photo; maybe this closeup will help.

When we use the Smooch Spritz in camp, often someone has questions about using this product.  Here are some tips from my own experience:

  • Shake before using, but
  • Shake the tube by holding the top and shaking down, as if shaking a thermometer down.
  • Don’t expect a shimmery mist; this product delivers more of a splatter.
  • Don’t expect to be able to control the coverage.
  • Enjoy the results!

I love using Smooch Spritz just because of its unpredictability; it’s great for shabby-chic or vintage looks.  If I were going for elegance, I’d use something else.

    Great card! I like how you created your color blocks, and the Smooch is awesome! I really like how you distressed the edges of the circle too.

    Great card and you are OH so right with your tips. I laughed (because it’s true) when I read “don’t expect to control the coverage”. It’s a great product but control freaks should BEWARE! lol
