Wedding Bells ♥♥

        Hi friends, today I am here with a handmade Wedding gift for my friend. It's an Indian style wedding picture & it was so much fun creating it & coloring the background. 


        I used a A4 size watercolor sheet from ItsyBitsy & made grid lines to pencil the image with ease. 


        And once done I was thinking whether to do a No-line coloring or to portray it with lines?!


        I finally decided to go with lines as it defines the image well.


        And I erased the grid lines, and I guess I am happy with how it turned out.


         I used Camlin water colors for coloring the image, used bright colors as I wanted them to be a bright & happy couple!!



        Once done I used green water color to saturate the background taking care to stay clear of the areas I had already painted. Then I used liberal amounts of table salt & kosher salt and sprinkled them all over the background. Then I let it dry overnight.
        Scraped of the excess salt, reinforced the black lines with my Pilot black pen & my friend's wedding gift is ready
