Inspired by Loll - CASE 10 - Saturated watercoloring

Hello everyone,

This is my last card in the Inspired by Loll series and though it feels just yesterday that I mailed Loll for seeking her permission, am so glad to get the opportunity to learn from the best. And if you want to know how much I have learnt, the best evidence is the amount of wins and recognitions I have had in the last two months.. most of them CASEs of Loll. So I needn't say anything, just that she's the best and the kindest soul I have come across and I feel blessed to get her blessings!

One of the tutorials on this technique I had seen and felt  'oh so easy' that I wanted to give it a try. But I didn't have the required supplies till now. I just received Catherine Pooler inks along with reinkers by Ardyth Percy Robb, for winning a prize at her blog. Yay.. so now I had waterbased reinkers for the saturated watercolouring! I also loved the pearl look Loll gets by her faux mother of pearl look, but I couldn't try the exact technique as I did not have the supplies, she used.

So this card, is an amalgamation of two techniques and thought I didn't CASE a card, this is how a  Saturated watercolor card done by Loll looks.

What a beauty!!

My card is nothing to what she did, not even a little close, hope to get better 
with this technique as I practice more.

I used flirty fushia and party dress from Catherin Pooler reinkers and perfect pearls on the watercoloured panel. Some elegance with a lace trim, pearls and ofcourse a smile.. that adds beauty to even a card!!

Thank you all for being a patient reader of my "Inspired by Loll series" and also try these techniques. Loll 's guidance and your constant encouragement means a lot. Loll Thompson is my Guru, that's how I have always thought of this relation. Guru - shishya (teacher-student) parampara (tradition)
is very old and important to Indians,  Loll will always be my Guru.

 Here's a story of the Great Guru Drona charya and the tribal boy Eklavya, for a Indian scripture story time- for those who would like to know more.  Not my story though, may be Guru Dronacharya could learn some empathy and love from Loll.

Thank YOU Loll...Thank you very much. I hope I get to meet you sometime soon, it'll be so wonderful. Don't be surprised if I touch your feet - that's how we take blessings of our Gurus.

Happy crafting everyone!
