30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 6

IMG_9570


A very late in the day card for Day 6 of Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily Marker.com!




A fun and chilly day today at Winterfest in Port Carling with some dear friends.
Really loving living life in Muskoka!

I picked up my new Concord & 9th By You're Side Bird Dies in the mail yesterday. Although it was late in the day before I had a chance to play did some quick watercolouring with my Zig markers--still need lots of practice with these. I die cut the birds with watercolour paper and applied the colour to the paper that I had already swept over with my waterbrush. I blended the shades with my waterbrush and finally did a sweep with water and my large flat brush.
