by Erum Tasneem

Hi there, everyone! Welcome to Creative Coloring with Erum. I finally get to share this card today with you that has been repeatedly requested. The products featured are the Build-A-Flower: Coneflower Layering Stamp & Die Set and the Woodless Watercolor Pencils.

Doesn't this card scream SPRING?! It does, right? And who doesn't like to color so many pretty flowers? Well, I know I do! So, I have the perfect technique for you – the Scribble & Spritz technique which I have covered previously, as well.

I came up with this technique accidentally. Maybe it has been around for a while and I never knew about it. But I first discovered it during my experiment with Watercolor Brush Markers. You can watch the videos HERE and HERE.

So I thought, why not try this with the Woodless Watercolor Pencils (video HERE) and it worked so well. I liked the result so much because when you use this technique with the Woodless Watercolor Pencils, it leaves a bit of residue behind, which looks so good and creates the perfect texture!

Scribble Scribble!

Start by stamping several images onto 9 x 12 Watercolor Cardstock in Embossing Ink. Then pour over Crystal Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it. Next, scribble with your choice of Woodless Watercolor Pencils. I used Maple Yellow for the flower centers and then added a bit of Orange Cream to add a bit of shading. You can see in the photo that my flower centers are glowing and it is because of using those two colors next to each other.

To get lighter or pastel color flowers, use either less pigment or pick up some of the pigment after applying water to the image.

Do not worry if you scribble the pigment out of the lines. Color like a child would :) Let go and have fun! It is better if the pigment does go out of the lines; it will cover any of the white space and it will make the floral garden appear fuller!

Spritz some Water!

Once you have applied pigment on all the flowers, spritz water onto the panel. You can use your paintbrush to move some of the pigment around but do not overwork it. Overworking might mix the pigment too well and you won't be able to tell the colors apart. Use your heat tool to dry this. And then die cut with the coordinating dies and set them aside.

For the background, I used an A2 Watercolor Cardstock and scribbled some Moss and one of the lighter green pigments with a gentle hand. Then I spritzed some water over it, activating the pigment. If your panel appears too light, you can use your paintbrush to pick pigment directly from the pencil. The same can be done for the flowers, as well.

Once my panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment in Obsidian Pigment Ink. Next, I adhered my images with foam tape. And then I added a few controlled splatters using Jet Black Artist Alcohol Marker.

You can watch the process video below or on YouTube.

I hope you will try this technique with your Woodless Watercolor Pencils. I do see a lot of you applying this technique with the Watercolor Brush Markers and it's so great to see your beautiful results. Thank you for tagging me. And thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely week! See you next Monday!

I love my wood less watercolor pencils, you taught me something new! I loved everything about this design. If only I had a die cutting machine, but I’ll try to compensate. One more thing to use those alcohol markers. Thank you for your inspiring video.❤️
