VIDEO: Lydia’s Crafty Corner – Easy Watercolor Roses

by Lydia Evans

Hey there, crafty friends! Lydia here. Today I'm dropping by to inspire you with a card making video tutorial on how to create easy watercolor roses using Watercolor Roses Stamp Set.

20200212 115541Getting the look like you have painted this yourself is so very easy! First, I stamped roses and foliage from Watercolor Roses Stamp Set onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of watercolor cardstock. I used a very light water-soluble ink. Once I was happy with the arrangement, I set to work. I then took each petal at a time; covered the petal with clean water and then dropped in color using the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set. For the flowers, I used Red Sunset, Summer Afternoon and a little Pure White. For the leaves, I used Tropical Forest and a little Delectable Delights.

20200212 115545Once all the coloring was finished, I let it dry completely. For the sentiment, I used Watercolor Roses Stamp Set and I stamped this using Obsidian Ink.

That card is so beautiful Lydia. Thank you for going into detail about how you watercolored it. I need to practice a bit more with that watercolor brushes instead of paintbrushes.
