Debby's Doodles

Hi, this is Debby and for my Doodling With Debby feature this month I’m using a small leaf image from the One With Nature set to create a watercoloured background pattern.

On Arches Hot Pressed watercolour card I repeatedly stamped the small leaf from the One With Nature set in clear embossing ink, sprinkled with Antique Gold embossing powder and heat set.

With the pattern now complete, I attached the watercolour card to a board and using Daniel Smith watercolours I painted over each leaf using a palette of green, red, pale pink and pale aqua. The watercolours I used were:

  • Green – Undersea Green mixed with Ultramarine Blue to give a beautiful Hunters Green
  • Red – Pyrrol Scarlet combined with a little Undersea Green to mute the tone of the red slightly
  • Pale Pink – dilute mix of Quinacridone Coral
  • Pale Aqua – dilute mix of Ultramarine Turquoise

I dried the panel with a heat tool before I splattered Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine over the top and then set it aside to dry.

For the sentiment, I used the Stained Glass Greetings set and stamped the ‘Merry’ in clear embossing ink on Black card, sprinkled with White embossing powder and heat set. I used the matching die to die cut the sentiment. I also stamped, and white heat embossed a matching sentiment from the set on Lipstick Red card.

I added foam adhesive to the back of all of the elements and then attached them to a Neenah Desert Storm card base. As a finishing touch, I added a trio of Gold sequins held in place with Multi Medium Matte.

Thanks for joining me today and I will see you next time for Doodling With Debby!
