Watercolour pencil fun by Debs

Hi All

Before we launch into Christmas, here is something a little different (i hope)  this piece was done with nothing other than an Archival Ink Pad, and some water colour pencils, water and a paint brush.
For the substrate i went really simple have a peek and let me know what you think

Here is the step out

first i took a piece of card (we all have a piece or two hanging around)

a piece of Tim Holtz tissue paper

and stuck the tissue to the card with  multi medium

Next i took the butterfly plate#2 and using three different sized butterflies stamped with Watering Can Archival (i wanted to keep the image light)

Taking some watercolour pencils a paint brush and some water i brushed water directly onto the image then taking some paint directly from the pencil with the wet brush and painted the butterflies I used two colours per butterfly and blended them together

Added a  large bee from the new Honeycomb and bees plate

Masked the bee with a post it

 and stamped over the top with the honeycomb stamp using the same grey Archival Ink

Then i drew round each honeycomb with a yellow pencil and then went over with the paint brush

and then went over with the wet paint brush

Using the words stencil I took a brown pencil and drew round some random letters
then added some water with a wet brush

I also took a brown  round the edge and pulled the colour across with a wet brush.  I also added the smaller bee to the top corner as well as adding some more honeycomb around the edge 

using the leaf stencil and a green pencil i added some leaves around the piece and also went around the edge of each butterfly with one of the colours used 

on a smaller piece of card i added some more tissue paper and again using the word stencil i used Hickory smoke Distress Ink make sure you heat set it and try not to get water on it

 I went around the edge with the brown pencil and pulled colour across and around the words

then went around the edge of the words with a black pencil then stick onto the main piece

 and around colour around the edge of card first in the brown and then in black again a touch of water

 I also added a bit of black again using the pencil to edges

Well I hope you have enjoyed my latest project.  Do let us know what you think we do read all of your comments and all are greatly appreciated.  Don't forget you still have to time to enter this months challenge.
