Hi friends! Happy Saturday, and please join me in welcoming back special guest Caly Person to our blog! Read on and, be sure to watch the video for extra details! Enjoy!
Hello friends! I have a watercolor card to share today. I usually only watercolor with one color, but today, I decided to add in another color for interest and it’s easy to do! My floral bouquet is an image from the Mom’s Spring Flowers set. I love the size of the petals and leaves; it’s not too busy and easy to paint.
I’m using the wet on wet technique. I apply water to wet the petal I’m going to be working on, then I apply wet pigment to the nooks and crannies and let that water draw out the pigment. At the other end/tip of the petal, I added yellow. Using a clean damp brush, I blend the two colors together. I have a video for you if you’d like to see the process!
When I was done watercoloring, I used the coordinating die to die-cut the image. Using a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen, I added in some details from the flower stamens. Then to add in some deeper colors at the base of each petal, I used some colored pencils on the flowers and leaves.
For the background, I masked a 5” x 7” panel using an A7 Mask Stencil and ink-blended with Melon, Cheeky, and Taffy Pawsitively Saturated Inks. I spritzed it with some water droplets for interest, then added my watercoored bouquet. Before removing the mask, I also added some white paint splatters.
I finished my card today with an embossed sentiment and some iridescent sequins. I hope you like it!! I appreciate you visiting today! ~Caly
