It's been awhile since I've posted a Twice is Nice feature. Some of you may have checked this feature on my sidebar where I make a second card using the same layout as the first card. It is such a good idea, because once you have the measurements and elements of a sketch in your mind, it is so easy to make another card with it.
It is really fun to make a change in your card shape, and a tall and skinny card is a nice alternative. My style yesterday was playful - today's card is elegant. And slightly smaller: it measures 3.5 x 5.25.
I love the effect of gold combined with Coastal Cabana (my NEW fav color!) and lots of white. I can't imagine a more clean and classic combo, can you?
Because I watercolored the image on white card stock instead of watercolor paper, I used my Aqua painter without filling it. I just dipped it in a bit of water, being careful to blot any excess with the tissue I kept in my hand. I began with Soft Sky and added layers of Coastal Cabana on top.
Speaking of layers, I used an oval die for the white piece. Then I traced around the outside edge of the same die on the Gold Foil paper and snipped it out with scissors.
The gold theme with embellishments continued with a wooden banner covered with gold Washi tape, and punched leaves and a flower accented with a gold dot.
If you've enjoyed this double-take on a sketch, you might want to have a look at other samples in my Twice is Nice category. Try it yourself soon, and let me know how it works for you!
