PP282: A Color Challenge

I saw some beautiful watercolor plaid pictures the other day, and I thought I should try one.

 I used the colors Laurie chose for the Paper Players Color Challenge this week. 

Drawing straight lines with one stroke was pretty difficult for me. At first, I tried to make the lines straight and even by painting over them, but that made the colors muddy - maybe because I used stamp ink instead of watercolor paint. Anyway, I ended up using several pieces of watercolor paper before I got this one right. Whew!

It WAS a challenge, but I still enjoyed trying a new technique.

Paper: Watercolor Paper, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Upsy-Daisy (mft), Stitched Squares STAX (mft), Handwritten Dies (little b), Mini Glue Dots

Thanks for stopping by!
