Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone it's Christine here at Magenta. Now I've just discovered Gouache (pronounced QWOSH) Watercolour paints. You are probably asking what are they?
Well many descriptions say they are opaque watercolours which can give a similar depth of colour and opacity as Acrylic paint. I re-stamped the image once the paint was dry.

Bonjour!  Je viens tout juste de découvrir la gouache peinture aquarelle.  Vous vous demander certainement ce que c'est?
Plusieurs descriptions font état d'aquarelle opaque qui peut donner un résultat semblable pour l'opacité et la profondeur des couleurs à de la peinture acrylique.  J'ai étampé de nouveau une fois la peinture sèche.


I used a gelli plate background and stamped my vase of daffodils on top. I added some stamping and stencilling to the background and then watercoloured the flowers in Gouache paints, the vase is coloured in pencils.

J'ai utilisé un arrière-plan provenant d'une plaque gelli et j'ai étampé le vase et les jonquilles par-dessus.  J'ai ajouté quelques étampes et pochoirs sur l'arrière-plan et puis j'ai mis les fleurs en couleurs avec de la gouache, le vase est mis en couleurs avec des crayons.
