Colour Me...!, Seize the Sketch and Lawn Fawn
I chose this set to practice my watercoloring. I am still a novice, so go easy on me. And I must admit, these are my first experience of using a die that is designed for the stamp set. I know I feel so behind the times. When I took a break from stamping/scrapping, that's when everything in this industry seemed to explode. There is so much out there. I am so looking forward to what else lies before us stampers.
I am using Seize the Sketch #14 and the colors from Colour Me..(subtle)! Subtle colors of Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Sky, Pistachio Pudding and a neutral. Such beautful colors and eye catching sketch. I used HA cubes and Distressed inks. IMO, yes, the hero arts can be used to watercolor, but they are not as easy to use as the distressed ink. The green HA ink (Green Hills) broke down into yellow with specks of blue on my watercolor pen, which I found very strange. The HA blue (soft pool) was fine. Because the green turned into yellow, I used Peeled Paint. The brown is HA Cup O Joe.
