This week's color challenge is being brought to you by yours truly to use More Old Muse: More Mustard, Old Olive, and Midnight Muse. Dessert option is watercoloring.
I watercolored my bird and my background. I used a direct to paper technique for the background, running my More Mustard and Old Olive ink pads across my card stock and then applied a light spritzing of water. Once dried, I stamped the Inspired by Nature image with Midnight Muse.
I used my bird punch for the bird and leaf branch, watercoloring him with reinkers and a watercolor brush. I sponged the edges with Midnight Muse for definition.
I love how vivid and rich these colors are together! I look forward to seeing what you create!
