Watercolor Splats

Did I tell you that I’m soooo excited about Water-coloring!!!  Well, just in case you missed it, I’m soooo excited about Water-coloring!!!!!

My water-coloring class starts next week and I can’t wait.  So in the meantime, I’m practicing using my watercolors.  I’m also waiting from my order to come in with some different types of watercolors for this class.  What class you ask, its my Online Card Class called Watercolor for card makers.  I want to learn everything there is to know about how to use water-coloring on my cards.  I also want my 7-year-old daughter to learn all about water-coloring as well. She’s taking the class with me, lol.

Today’s card is for Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday #161: Watercolor Splats challenge.  What a great way to practice water-coloring!!! I Love It.

So, watercolor splats are a fun twist that lets you use droplets of water to do all of the work for you.  I used Papertrey dye ink’s to pull of this effect.  My order of ink’s came in today which was perfect for this card.  The colors are amazing and they do dry fast.

Take a look:

You are My...Watercolor Splats

To create these watercolor splats, I used my sponge daubers to apply the ink to my paper.  I love the textured look the sponge daubers created on my paper.

After applying each color of ink, I used my Artist’s Loft #4 paint brush soaked with water and touched my paper with the tip of the brush.  I didn’t press hard at all.

Once the water landed on the paper, the ink started to move all by itself.  To create bigger circles, I just added more water to the center of the circle.  It was fun to watch.

I can’t wait for my 8 year daughter to create her card with these splats.  She is going to be amazed.  I’ll post her card when she is done.

  1. Watercoloring is one of my faves!!!! I just think that it is hard to go wrong with watercoloring. Nice card Kymona ! The colors on this card are awesome! I cannot wait to see what your daughter comes up with!

  2. I love playing with watercolour, you can get some amazing effects as you have discovered. I don’t use mine as much as I should since I found Copics! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. 🙂

    • Your welcome Julie! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I’m assuming we could use the Copic refills with some water too. I wonder what that would look like. I have to try it!

  3. Your card is wonderful as well (I just visited your DD’s card post). I really like these colors together. Very tropical! I have this “phrase play” die and stamp set – I like how you used it here! And I also like how you corner chomped the opposite corners – great looking!
