Pretty Pink Posh – Koala Friends

Hi Everyone!

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!  I was going to add this to my weekly coloring challenge repost cap for later this week but I I felt like it deserves it’s own post!  I did my very first watercolor scene!

I had colored all the images and cut them out for the coloring challenge and thought to myself “How am I going to get ALL these koalas on a card?”  Overkill?  NAH….

Koala Friends Coloring 1

Copic Colors used:  Baby Koalas-W3, W1;  Koalas-W2, W00; Leaves-YG05, G03; Bellies/Inner Ears-E000, E0000; Cheeks-R30; Branch-E41, E34.

When I was done, I decided to watercolor a background.  I smooshed some distress inks on a laminated piece of cardstock that I use as a palette and painted on the background – adding several layers.  I did the branches and leaves last.

I used Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Lucky Clover, Mustard Seed, Broken China, and Gathered Twigs.  I’ve never done this before so I was worried it wouldn’t turn out ok but I think it did once the critters were arranged on the card…and I managed to use them all!

I used a Mama Elephant border die to cut out the card layer and propped a few of the koalas up using foam tape for added dimension and interest. Eep!  These koalas are so darn cute!!!  I REALLY really hope you like this card because I’m so excited to share it today!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Father’s day!
