Paper Funday June 2023

Welcome to July 2023 Paper Funday Challenge! I kept thinking of red, white and blue for this month and I choose a image from SheepSki Designs which I thought would work perfectly. They are one of our generous sponsors this month and please check out all their amazing designs on their Etsy Shop HERE. My digital image is called Mini Vases - Image No. 264.
As always I start by cut and pasting the image in Microsoft Word (Insert - Pictures) with narrow margins. I usually create at least 2 different sizes and for these vases I had 3 on one page and 2 larger images on another.
I printed both pages onto Ranger Ink's Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper on the rough side through my laser printer, since I knew I would be water coloring. I used the Daniel Smith 238 Dot Watercolor Cards and Altenew's Artist's 24 Pan Watercolor Set. My favorite brush which I use for everything is the Size 8 of  Silver Brushes - Black Velvet.
All of the backgrounds just came from my stash. If you're like me once you start playing with a stencil or stamp, you can't stop and end up with lots of backgrounds. They really come in handy to make quick cards!
And here we are back to my main card. Love the blues created with Distress Inks.
Thank you for visiting my blog and come play along at The Paper Funday Challenges. Give watercoloring on a digital image a try, post on our challenge...very fun!
