Good Wednesday morning. I have a clean and simple project to share with you today using the newly released Impression Obsession Songbird Branch and framed with the Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames. I couldn’t wait to get the Songbird Branch in my hands to try coloring with Memento Markers and a waterbrush. I love these markers and can’t wait to add more to my collection.
I cut the image out using Arches Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper. I lightly misted the paper to prepare to receive color. I applied ink from the markers on an acrylic block, picked up the color with my waterbrush and watercolored the images. When I was finished I heat dried and then applied clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.
I wanted to frame the birds and branch on an all white background and wanted to add dimension with the simple frame. I mounted the frame and mat using thin strips of mounting tape and attached to the card base. I applied three thin layers of mounting tape to the back of each bird and attached to the card base. I left both sides of the branches free. Although the birds are songbirds I think they look like their having a conversation. I love how clean and simple the whole card is and that the birds and branch can be the main focus.
I would love for you to join me in the CLASSroom today for my step by step tutorial using Memento Markers to color my Hummingbird and Tulips project below. It marker projects all week long in the CLASSroom so you will want to check back every day.
Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a good day.
