A Prayer for You


Welcome everyone to Summer and July's HLS Watercolor Challenge!
Is it hot where you are?
We finally broke 100's for 2 weeks! 
So not complaining about the 90's!

This month's challenge is an 'Anything Goes' with a twist... Blue!


Watery blue? How about seashells on the beach?


Looks 'cool' to me!

Here's how I did this layered watercolor.


The outside card is 4 x 5 1/4". The top is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4". 
I wet the watercolor paper completely and just dabbed on the colors randomly.
On the top card, I left the edges a bit white to stand out against 
the bottom card.
Don't mind my dirty work table. It cleans up at the end!


Added a bit of Mr. Huey's Color Mist, Shine and 
Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel (Stampendous), to simulate sand.
Stamps and dies: PapertreyInk
Simple Seashells, Inspired: Prayer
I used my tube watercolors this time. Truthfully, the translucence is 
unmatched!
Play along for a gift certificate to the HLS shop.
