Video: Floral Watercolor Card using Two Watercolor Techniques

by May Sukyong Park

Altenew Watercolor Card May Park 10Hi, crafty friends! It's May here with a floral watercolor card. To create my own floral arrangement, I mixed the images from several stamp sets: Garden Treasure, Remember This, Beautiful Day.

Altenew Watercolor Card May Park 6After stamping the images with black waterproof ink, I colored them with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set using two different watercolor techniques.

For my yellow flower, I used a quick and easy watercolor technique.

Altenew Watercolor Card May Park 7For the orange flower, I spent more time on watercoloring and added multiple layers to give extra dimension and depth to my flower.

Altenew Watercolor Card May Park 5Can you tell the difference between the pink and orange flower? The pink flower has some harsh lines on the petals as I applied the pigment after the previous layer was dry.

Altenew Watercolor Card May Park 2The orange flower has a smooth and gradient look of the colors as I added the pigment while the previous layer was wet. I love both results. What do you think?

Altenew Watercolor Card May Park 4As usual, I dressed up my envelope a bit by stamping the sentiment and image on the flap from the Crafty Friends stamp set.


I made a video tutorial to show you how to make my watercolor card from start to finish. You can watch it here or in HD on YouTube. Hope you find it helpful.
