Try That Technique: Cling Pearls

Have you ever wondered if a watercoloured image would coordinate with a technique background?  Today I have just the card for you.

When Diana challenged me to use Cling Pearls for the Technique Junkie Newsletter challenge, I was stumped about using it with any other medium.  Yes, I was stumped.  So, I turned to Julie’s Mojo Monday sketch and that got me moving.

I decided to pull out a circular stamp and my Tombow Markers and to work I went.  I was pleased with how the watercolour worked with this image.

Next, the challenge was to choose colours to coordinate with my Cling Pearls.  I started with the main colour, and turned the colour wheel so that the blue/purple was at the top.  Looking along the bottom, there were three choices to use as accents.  As you can see, I used two colours:  red/orange, burnt orange and went back up to the purple/blue colours and used a blue.

The open space bothered me (you know how I like to fill up my space) so I used a new-to-me flourish.  Oh, how I love flourishes.  Do you?

You will more watercolours to come.  Have a great day, and happy stamping!
