Welcome to the ELC Release Blog Hop!!! Today is the big day---- the newest release over at Erin Lee Creative is available and ready for you to shop, shop, shop!
I chose this framed watercolor piece for my blog hop project today. A lot of the products in today's release remind me our great state of Kansas. I used the Sunflower background stamp, Arches watercolor paper and watercolors to create this vibrant piece.
I stamped the image onto the watercolor paper with Amalgam Ink then started the watercoloring process.
The first 3-4 layers are all watercolor, making sure to let the colors dry before adding the next layer.
Once all the layers of watercolor were added I went back and added color in the nooks and crannies along with a few details with fine Sharpie markers.
I just could not bring myself to cut it into a card. So this I framed it! Besides photos, this is my first ever framed piece of art that I have created.
I simply trimmed up the edges and found a couple of 8 x 8 frames from Hobby Lobby.
The watercolor sunflower piece was layered on top of a piece of water cardstock to create the mat.
Here is a photo of all the new release products that are available.
