3-D painted doodles

Pretty flowers!  I wanted a little dimension in my doodles and tapped the creative stash for my Adirondack Liquid Pearls by Ranger. (my sister Teresa said my home studio looks like a "store" with all my supplies, LOL!) 

On white heavy cardstock, i drew a simple pencil sketch outlining some flowers, hearts and stars.  With the nice thin point on the bottle of Pearls, i traced the outlines and let them dry overnite. Even though it was killing me to be patient, you probably could use your heat gun to dry.  Then, my favorite part, the coloring!!!!!!  Love love love me some coloring!!

Filled in the design areas with Winsor Newton watercolors, then cut them out.  These will be great fun "handmade" embellishments for cards, scrap pages, journaling.  Really like the raised outlines.

Placed the Copic Sketch marker in these pics to show the size of the objects, they're huge!

So, all you art girls, let's play! Would you like your very outline page to try this technique?  Yes? I'll doodle up something special and will post a free sheet of coloring outlines for you to print out in  tomorrow's blog.
