Hello everyone. Happy Friday! Lydia here. Today I’ll be sharing a card that uses our watercolor brush markers, in three different ways.
I started by stamping the curved image from Paint-A-Flower: Daffodil into place onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of watercolor cardstock. I used Embossing Ink to stamp the image and heat embossed using Pure White Embossing Powder. Once this was done I colored directly to the paper using Watercolor Brush Markers. They are so easy to use directly to paper and blend seamlessly. For the flowers I used Citrus Burst, Sunkissed and Orange Cream Watercolor Brush Markers. The berries were colored using Purple Wine Brush Marker. The leaves I used Moss and Lime Watercolor Brush Markers. For the small flowers, Mountain Mist and Lagoon Watercolor Brush Markers were used for the petals, for the centers of these I touched the brush of Citrus Burst to Orange Cream , that way I could create a blended look with just one marker- I love to do this and it doesn’t harm the Brush Markers in any way.
Once I had finished the coloring I went around the outside edge of the images using Desert Night Watercolor Brush Marker. This helps the image pop. To add a little softness to this I pulled out this color a little using a wet paint brush. This is one of my favorite techniques when using these pens.
The sentiment is from Floral Garden Stamp Set and I simply heat embossed this in white onto Jet Black Cardstock.
