Here’s #2 of the cards and techniques I did in my Watercolor Techniques Class. I got this idea from a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Patty Bennett.
You use watercolor paper, spritz it with the Stampin’ Spritzer (both sides if you don’t want it to curl). Ink the Watercolor Wash Stamp Set. First stamp with the lighter color (in this case Daffodil Delight) then use your second color in two or three areas (Watermelon Wonder). Spritz the inked stamp and then stamp onto the watercolor paper. If it’s runny, that’s OK, just let it drip because when it dries it blends itself.
With an envelope liner the set is complete. I’m using my retired DSP for liners…good way to use them up.
Now check out the centers of the flowers…I used dots of Dazzling Details.
To color the flowers and leaves I used the Stampin’ Write Markers and Aqua Painter.
This card was so much fun to make. I know I’ll use this technique many times. I’ve always loved to watercolor and got away from it for a time…now I’m back to it and loving it! Try this technique on your own and let me know how you like it.
