Time Out by Moonbeam Meadown

Moonbeam Meadow must be my favorite collection from Crafter's Companion. I've had these images for awhile now and have been debating whether to color it with alcohol markers, colored pencils or watercolor. Since I've been playing a lot with my Faber Castell Gelatos lately, I thought I'd do a pure gelato watercolor technique on one version.

The image I used is Time Out, and it aptly fits what I've been feeling lately. How I wish I have the luxury of time to just sit back and relax, and idle the day away.

Here are the materials I used:

Cardstock - Close to My Heart Juniper color cardstock
Background Paper - Jillibean Soup
Colors using mix of  Faber Castell Gelatos:
Blues - Cotton Candy, Boysenberry, Blueberry
Greens - Gree Tea, Lime, Iced Pear
Purples - Metallic Grape, Lavender
Red - Red Cherry
Browns - Chocolate, Butterscotch
Oval Dies - Silhouette Die Cut
Round Sentiment Die - My Favorite Things Stitched Circle STAX

Lastly, I brushed the red mushroom cap with Wink of Stella Red and White brushes.

My second version uses Derwent Inktense Pencils.

Background Paper - My Mind's Eye
Dies - Simon Says Stamp Postage Dies
Derwent Inktense Colors Used:
Reds - Poppy Red, Chilli Red
Purples - Thistle
Blues - Iris Blue, Lagoon, Navy Blue
Browns - Willow, Baked Earth
Greens - Hooker's Green, Apple Green
Mushroom Stem - Neurtral Gray, White

And last but not the least, I brushed the red mushroom cap with Wink of Stella Clear.
