Doodling with Debby: Watercolored Peonies

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday and welcome to the latest edition of Doodling with Debby! Watching Debby Hughes watercolor is truly magical! Be sure to watch the video for all the details and enjoy!

Hello, it’s Debby here. When I saw the new Delicate Outline Flowers set from Simon’s new Rainbows release I knew I had to paint it! My first thought was to heat emboss the design in Antique Gold Embossing powder and use the raised heat embossed lines to resist some quick and easy watercoloring. However, in the end, no-line watercoloring won as I felt this technique lets the gorgeous blooms shine.

STEP BY STEP HOW TO

  • Stamp the Simon Says Stamp Delicate Outline Flowers set using Spun Sugar and Bundled Sage Distress Markers on Fabriano Artistico Cold-Pressed watercolor card.
  • Tape the card to a board with 3M Painter’s Tape to prevent warping.
  • Watercolor. I used Daniel Smith paints.
  • Splatter with White Gouache, left-over paint and Perfect Pearls
  • Trim the panel and adhere to a Fog card base with 3M Foam Tape.
  • Trim two coordinating greetings from the Simon Says Stamp Sentiments Strips Reverse Wedding set and adhere with foam tape.
  • Add a trio of Eggshell Pearls using Gina K connect glue to keep them in place.

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.

  1. So pretty. I certainly don’t think you need more practice. This card was awesome and love this background stamp. Thanks for all your tips and techniques.

  2. can you share what colors you used for the flowers? I caught the name of the green but not clear on the crimson. I am not familiar with the brand of watercolors and am trying to find something similar.
