For this week's FS23 challenge I chose this card of Cindy's to case: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p;ppuser=80269 I changed the size of the card (normal vs long), stamp used, and used Kittie's watercolor landscape technique. The jumbo hollyhock wheel became the background. Stamped the birdhouse scarcrow in black and used rose art colored pencils to color. Sketched the tree trunk and colored with prismacolor watercolor pencils and a blender pen. Then used Kittie's watercolor mini fern to create the grass and leaves. Stippled bashful blue for sky; then realized I forgot the fence. Sketched the fence and colored it also using the colored pencils.
