Daisy and Dandelion Day - A Day Late!

Apologies to all, I have had a hectic week with family over and the house being decorated. Last night although i got the card and the tutorial done, I had such bad back pain I did not have the energy to write the tutorial and upload. I was on the verge of tears and made the decision to go to bed and rest. The back is slightly better, and taken more painkillers. However, you will have to bare with me this week if there are no new cards as although the back is better, I have learnt from the past to not push myself and do things that my back is not ready to do yet.

Anyways, onto this weeks tutorial which for the month of March is me. This week I am using waterbrush markers.

1. Stamp the image and gather the waterbrush marker, an acrylic brush, a waterbrush or water and a paintbrush

2. Scribble the waterbrush marker onto the acrylic block

3. Pick up this with your waterbrush

4. Colour the entire image with this (no shading at this time)

5. Let this dry, and then add the shading using the cololured image on the clear stamp set as your guide.

6. Using the same technique colour in the easter egg, the grass. and outline the image with the fine end of the marker (optional). By adding less water you can create darker shade or by adding more water you can reate lighter shades. When you start you may want to test the colour onto spare card until you are confident. This is your finished coloured image.

I had some messages following last weeks tutorial. Please note that with any new technique the D&D design team members show, it takes practise to get better and get the technique right. Some will pick up on this sooner and some later.
