Doodling with Debby: Simple Watercolored Scene

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Debby Hughes for our monthly installment of Doodling with Debby. Read on, and be sure to watch the video for all the details. Enjoy!

Hello, it’s Debby here. I do love keeping things simple, two kitties stamped together and then watercolored. A little colour around them to set the scene and done. I also love this sentiment which I cut apart from a longer version on the stamp set. I think we all need time to pause or paws as in kitty paws at the moment. 

STEP BY STEP HOW TO

  • Stamp the larger cat from the Simon Says Stamp Happy Meowther’s Day set in Nocturne ink on masking paper and trim out.
  • Stamp the larger cat again but this time on Fabriano watercolour card.
  • Cover the image with the mask and then stamp the smaller cat just slightly higher than the larger cat so that it appears as if it is in front.
  • Remove the mask and tape the card to a board. Watercolour. I used Daniel Smith paints.
  • Splatter with white gouache and perfect pearls solution while the paint is wet for them to disperse slightly in the wet paint.
  • Watercolour around the highlights with darker paint to emphasise them.
  • When fully dry, splatter again with white gouache, perfect pearls and left-over paint.
  • Cut apart a greeting from the Meowther’s Day set and stamp on the Black card, treated with anti-static powder, with clear embossing ink and white heat emboss.
  • Trim the sentiment to a skinny strip and also trim the watercolored panel to be just smaller than an A2 card base.
  • Cut and score an A2 card base from Neenah Desert Storm card in the 100lb weight for sturdiness. 
  • Add the watercolored panel with foam tape and also the sentiment strip.
  • Accent with Sea Breeze and Duck Egg Blue Nuvo droplets along with Eggshell Pearls.

Well, that’s me for this month. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial; you’ll find the video below. Thanks for joining me and I hope to see you next time for Doodling With Debby.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Debby for being our guest!

  1. Cute card. Love me some kitties and these were so cute sitting together. Thanks for the tips and techniques.

  2. Such a sweet card. Thanks for the thorough directions on your painting process, I love playing with watercolors.

  3. A total charmer! Love the diffuse watercolor background. Whole composition is quiet and restful, perfect for taking a “Paws”!
