How Much Do You Love Amazing Colors?

 

watercolor for card makers

Day 2 of my Watercolor for Card Makers was just as much fun as the first.  The teachers are amazing and they have so much information to share with us.

Today I choose to focus on the Soft Watercolor Wash Background technique.  The beauty of this technique is to not have any pencil lines showing in the color wash.  I used my Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils (Retired), watercolor paper and a brush. 

I love how my card turned out.  I choose to use colors that I hardly use which were orange, light green and yellow.  The combination turned out beautiful.

Love this

Sooooo, what do you think?  I can’t believe I created that all by myself.  I amaze myself sometimes!!

 

This is how I created this card:

1. I used the watercolor pencils to simple color on the watercolor paper in the different colors.  I didn’t mix the colors while coloring them.

2. I used my brush and applied water to my card to soften the watercolor lines. I allowed the colors to mix a little to have some blending where the colors met.

3. I used my heat gun to dry the paper.  Once the paper was COMPLETELY dried I added orange waters splats to the card.

4. To add the water splats, I touched my water brush to the tip of my orange watercolor pencil for color.  Then I lightly flashed the brush above the paper.

5. I used the heat gun again to dry all of the water splats.

6. I placed gold bakers twine down where I wanted it to be.  I added a little bit of adhesive as to hold it in place.

7. I stamped my sentiment, punched it out and adhered it to the bakers twine.

8. I adhered the mask to the card base for a complete Soft Watercolor Wash Background Card!

Truly Amazing!!!

Someone Like You….

I’m back again with another card for Less is More week 168 theme challenge. This weeks challenge is “Makes me smile”.  It’s simply that…something that makes you smile.

I was surfing Pinterest and came across a card that made me smile so I decided to make my own version of the card.  I used three stamp sets to create this card.

Take a look:

Someone Like You should be celebrated everyday

The sentiment and the colors on this card makes me happy.  I hope it makes you happy as well.

Please leave a comment letting me know what you think of my card.
