Watercolor Raven – A Day For Daisies

It’s the weekend and I’m back at my crafting desk.  Why can’t everyday be Saturday?  I’d sure rather create than work.  Today I wanted to watercolor so I grabbed the freebie from A Day For Daisies and printed it on lightweight 90 lb watercolor paper by Canson.  I heat set it with my new Milwaukee heat gun and used distress ink cubes in weathered wood, tumbled glass, vintage photo, pumice stone, black soot, peeled paint, gathered twigs, and scattered straw from Tim Holtz/Ranger with a water brush.  With all watercoloring, make sure you work in sections and allow each to dry.  That way you don’t get mud.  The paper is from Bazzill’s Arsenic and Lace. Sentiment is My Favorite Things.  I also added some glitter on the sentiment for the A Day For Daisies challenge.  I’m happy with how this came out – what do you think?
