Most people when they think about watercoloring, think about a painting on canvas. Did you know that can also watercolor on paper? There are many techniques and tools to help you out with this process.
My card share today uses markers and the blender pen from Stampin’ Up!.
Stamps: You’ve Got This.
Ink/Markers: Marina Mist, Soft Sky Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Basic Grey Archival Ink, Basic Black Archival Ink.
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Grey, Soft Sky, Neutrals DSP Stack (Basic Grey Script Sheet).
Accessories: Big Shot, Lots of Labels Framelits, 1/4” Circle Punch, 5/8” Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Blender Pens, Clear Block.
Steps to create this card:
- The flower was stamped on Whisper White using the Basic Black Archival ink.
- To color the flower, the Marina Mist and the Soft Sky markers were scribbled onto a clear block. This becomes your pallet for picking up the colors. Using a Blender Pen, pick up some of the Marina Mist and start coloring. Leave some white space on the flower petals. Now pick up some of the Soft Sky ink off the clear block. Start to shade the petals and again leaving some white space. This will allow the look of shading. THe leave were done in the same manner using Cucumber Crush and Pear Pizzazz
- The large background stamp is stamped on Basic Grey card stock using the new Archival Basic Grey ink. This product will be available to order when the Holiday Catalogue goes live on September 1st. This panel was die cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits, holes punched in each end with the 1/2″ Circle punch.
- Before attaching the die cut panels, string the Satin Ribbon through the punched holes and tie in a know. Don’t forget to trim your ends.
Try the watercolor on paper technique and enjoy the sense of relaxation.
