Hi there everybody. I am a bit busier these days and I tend to run out of time to enter those challenges which I really hate to miss and this is one of them. CAS Watercolour Challenge has the theme of Sunflower this time and I couldn't find one in my stash, so I searched on line and found this digital image which was quite pretty with its mass of rather crumpled petals, a bit more random than some..lol.
I started by cutting a mask for it and then after putting it in place I used my Brushos to create a background, and I did the stencil monoprinting technique using one of the That Special Touch of Masks called Orbit. I sprinkled three colours over it and spritzed using Ultramarine, Leaf Green and Turquoise, and I think the Leaf Green which has quite a lot of yellow in it mixed with blues has given a predominantly green look with very little blue, but that's the nature of Brushos which give a different finish every time. I did add quite a lot of water to keep it fairly light as I didn't want it to dominate. I removed the mask and then coloured using some of the Brusho powder on my glass mat and applied with a waterbrush using Yellow, Lemon, Brilliant Red and Dark Brown for the flowers, and some more of the Brown and red for the centre with a little Black.
I finished with a die cut sentiment from The Works which has two layers but leaving it white means it doesn't stand out too much.
Thank you for taking a look today.
