I have to be honest that this week wasn't as easy to complete all the cards. I really had to force myself to complete some of them. But that's ok. It's still fun to do and I'm looking forward to Week Three.
Here's the scenario: I'm sitting with my family watching the Giants play the Diamondbacks. Madison Bumgarner is on the mound and he's pitching a no hitter into the 7th inning. Nobody is saying it out loud, but we feel the tension even from our family room. Two outs, still striking out the side, but then the next batter gets a base hit. UGH! He strikes out the next batter and eventually wins the game with a shut out and only one hit. I really wanted to do my index card all about a no-hitter, but I did write on the back about his performance since it was still noteworthy.
I drew the home plate in the center and then watercolored the background. I used my Sahara Sand inkpad to add some color around home plate. I also used some walnut ink around the edges. Handwrote the quote. Used the Lila Grey Elements #2 stamp set and a variety of green inks to add some marks around the piece. Then used white acrylic paint too. LOVE!
I grabbed red, blue and green acrylic paint to fingerpaint circles around the card. Black ink and a toilet tissue roll for the black circles. White correction pen for the white dots and marks. I know, this has nothing to do with T.V., but I wasn't really inspired by this prompt so I just played and then I added the words to keep with the theme.
I grabbed these rectangle and square stamps that I haven't used in forever! A variety of bright ink colors and just stamped. Added more circle shapes around the index card and used a white pen to draw circles in the larger dots. I wrote the words very loopy with a black BIC pen & highlighted in white. I started with squares since it reminded me of four-square and hopscotch.
This one is pretty basic. I colored in one side with a yellow watercolor marker and the other with a bright pink marker. Although if I would have mixed these two, it would have gave me an orange color, but instead of actually mixing them, I just used an orange marker. I used blue watercolor paint around the edge and outlined the circles with a black watercolor marker. I spritzed it with water and it ran way too much. So I blotched it and drew it again. I wrote the words "you, me, us". Not much to this one but I do like the way the watercolor gives a blotched background. I wonder if you get this because of the gesso'd base??
