Joy Clair - Wild & Free Galaxy Scene

Hello, Joy Clair friends! This month, the design team is showing the different types/techniques that can be done with watercolors. If you have noticed lately, galaxy backgrounds have been very popular. I have tried this watercolor technique a few times and learning different ways to improve it.

I decided to create a scene card using the new Wild & Free stamp set and a variety of watercolor mediums.

To start the galaxy background, I used a few watered down distress inks and painted the sky portion of the panel. I used purple, black and a couple blues to create the sky.

Once the watercolor dried, I dropped a few water drops over the paint. I did this by dipping a brush in water and tapping the brush to create the water drops.

The water drops are left on the paint for a couple of minutes. When it is time to remove the water drops, simply place a paper towel over the drops and press lightly to soak up the water.

To finish the galaxy background, I added some speckles of some watered down white acrylic paint. I used the same tapping the paint brush to get the speckles.

Now it is time to complete the rest of the scene. I used ZIG Clean Color markers to color in the mountains. The mountains are cut out and attached to the scene. I used watered down distress ink to paint the water part of the scene.

The fox and the canoe are stamped in black ink and colored in with ZIG Clean Color markers. The images are cut out and attached to the scene. I used a fancy rectangle to cut out the panel. The panel is added to a fun print and mounted onto a card base.  The sentiment is stamped in white and also embossed with white embossing powder.
