Video: Creative Coloring with Erum – Winter Wonderland Watercolor Brush Markers

by Erum Tasneem

Hi there everyone! Erum here today with another session of Creative Coloring with Erum. Today I am sharing five cards with you featuring the World Map Stamp Set and watercolored backgrounds. I used the new Winter Wonderland Watercolor Brush Markers to color a few panels then created clean and simple cards out of them.

Altenew World Map Stamp Set | Watercolor Brush Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0I started by stamping several panels with the World Map Stamp Set. All the panels were heat embossed using different embossing powders. I will mention the embossing powder colors/names as we get to the projects.

I used Antique Gold Embossing Powder to heat emboss this panel. I then scribbled Emerald, Persian Blue, and Lagoon Watercolor Brush Markers directly on the panel. Next, I sprayed this panel very generously with water. I also used a paintbrush to help cover the white spots that didn't catch the watercolor.

As the panel started drying, the splatters became more visible increasing the grungy, textured look. In the end, I added water splatters and sopped up the excess with a tissue paper.

Next, I cut a banner of black cardstock and heat embossed my sentiment. I also added a thin strip of Gold Glitter Tape above the sentiment. Next to the “hello”, I adhered a die-cut Gold Foil heart with the help of the tiny stars and hearts dies that come in the New Day Card Kit. I adhered the sentiment label on the card front, but before doing that, I also added a bit of gold string for interest.

Next, I applied Lagoon Watercolor Brush Marker in some places and then went back in with Persian Blue Watercolor Marker.

For the card, I decided to add a few strips which I cut out of a panel that I colored with Persian Blue and Caribbean Sky Artist Markers. This is an interesting technique, you should definitely watch the video to see how I created the panel. I then cut out several strips of various thickness out of that panel and adhered it below my watercolored panel.

Altenew World Map Stamp Set | Watercolor Brush Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0I made two cards out of my third panel. But first, let me tell you how I watercolored this panel. I started by spritzing water onto the panel, which has Copper heat embossing, by the way. Then I added Rouge Watercolor Brush Marker and it starting spreading right away, following the pathway that the water spritz made and formed a beautiful vein-like pattern. Next, I added Ruby Red Watercolor Brush Marker and the third color I added was Citrus Burst Watercolor Brush Marker. I did go back to add more of Rouge Watercolor.

Altenew World Map Stamp Set | Watercolor Brush Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0I used Halftone Hearts Nesting Die Set to die cut a heart out of this panel. Before stamping the sentiment, I inked the panel with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Next, I placed a bit of gold string then adhered my heart over it. To finish, I adhered a few sequins.

On the panel, I first generously applied Espresso Watercolor. I did leave a bit of a border to which I added Jet Black Watercolor Brush Marker. I made sure to touch the already wet Espresso watercolor so that the two would react and form cool patterns.

To make it even more interesting, I went back in with Espresso Watercolor Brush Marker and added color to the area where the two colors met so that a little bit of black flows into the Espresso area.

Altenew World Map Stamp Set | Watercolor Brush Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0For the card, I cut the watercolored panel to the width of my card and adhered it to a piece of black cardstock that was slightly larger than the watercolored panel. Before mounting this on the card front with foam tape, I stamped the sentiment.

To finish, I adhered a small die-cut heart next to the sentiment.

Erum, thanks for sharing these lovely cards and your video with a great tutorial for water coloring with these new markers. I especially like how you used the map image as the focal point for each card sentiment.

Hi Erum, Thanks for sharing. Love how you used the water color brushes to create a background. The embossing was a nice focal point.
