I made this card for my Son's 2nd Birthday. He is obsessed with trucks and he totally loved it.
Stamped on watercolor paper and filled in to give depth with co-ordinating SU markers. Blended with a paint brush and water. I find aqua painters too messy. I wanted the black to be totally opaque, so I didn't touch that with the paint brush at all. The road base was a mixture of colour applied with a sponge as was the sky. The clouds were created using blended SU water color crayons. These gave a little thicker, slightly more opaque look when blended than did the stamp pad ink.
