Hello friends! Erum here and I have another watercolor tutorial to share with you.
My card features the Paint-A-Flower: Flowering Dogwood Outline Stamp Set. If you want to learn a cool way to watercolor, read on! I will show you a different kind of watercoloring technique in today's card project. Let's get started with this watercolor tutorial!
- Create a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base. Set aside.
- On an A2 Watercolor Cardstock, heat emboss the Paint-A-Flower: Flowering Dogwood Outline Stamp Set in Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder.
- From the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set, use a mix of Tea Party, Cherry Blossom, and a bit of Summer Afternoon watercolor pigment for the flowers.
- Apply water to the petals and then add the mixture of watercolor pigment to the petals. Move it a bit and then leave it aside. Color all petals the same way, adding concentrated watercolor pigment closer to the flower center.
- Once all the flowers are colored, go back to the first flower and add the Red Cosmos watercolor. Add this watercolor pigment as strokes. Blend this slightly. Go back to the first flower again and use harsher, prominent strokes this time.
- For the leaves, use a mix of blues and Sea Shore watercolor pigment. Add a diluted, leftover red to the tips.
- For the flower center, use a mix of orange and yellow. Set aside to dry. Fussy cut the image once dry.
- On an A2 Watercolor Cardstock, use the same colors as used on the flowers and leaves to add a light color wash. Dry the panel.
- Use the Halftone Circles Nesting Die Set to die cut a few circles. And apply Vanilla Cream Crisp Dye Ink with the help of a Mini Blending Brush.
- Place the circular elements behind the fussy cut image and adhere with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
- Stamp sentiment in Obsidian Ink on a strip of cardstock and tuck it behind the floral over the larger circle.
- Use a Fine Liner Pen to add controlled splatters.
- To finish, add Satin Gold Sequins.
