Creative Way To Have Fun With Watercolors

 

watercolor for card makers

OMG!!!  In my Watercolor for Card Makers class, Julie Ebersole, showed us how to do some creative watercolor stamping!!  I was blown away.  The card she made was so playful and nice.  I had to make my own version of the card.  She used some inks, watercolor paper, a beautiful butterfly wings die by Memory Box and a pencil eraser.  Yes, a pencil eraser, talk about non-tools in my tool box.

The only thing I didn’t have, was the butterfly wings die, so I ordered it and it arrive today.  I’m so lucky because that die is out of stock now.

When I saw the die on my desk, I knew I had to create this card today!

Fly away with me

Butterfly side

Aren’t you amazed!!! The butterfly wings just pop right off the paper.  It gives the card a 3 dimensional look.  It looks amazing.

Instead of using inks, I used my Koi watercolors to create my dots.  The dots were made with the pencil eraser.  I added the three colors to my color palette and then I dipped my pencil eraser into each of the three colors and applied it to my paper.  I made sure to place the dots in one area so that I can cut my butterfly wings for dimension.

Let me know what you think.

 

Congrats to Lizzie T she won the SSS Wrapped Mailing Label Die.  Lizzie T I will contact you so that I can send you the die.  Thanks for visiting my blog.
