Doodling with Debby: Watercolored Winter Scene

Debby's Doodles

Hi friends! Happy Sunday, and welcome back to another delightful edition of our Doodling with Debby monthly blog feature with Debby Hughes! Be sure to watch the video for more information and enjoy!

Hello, Debby Hughes here. In today’s video, I’ll be creating a little winter scene with watercolouring and ink blending using the Santa’s Sleigh Ride Slider set

This is a card of two parts, a busy ink blended sky with a calm watercolored scene underneath. 

I use this method of writing a step-by-step instruction on my blog and thought you’d like it here too, although the video goes into things in more detail: 

  • Stamp the winter scene from the Santa’s Sleigh Ride Slider set in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. 
  • Stamp the scene again on Simon Says Stamp masking paper, trim out and lay over the one on the watercolored card. 
  • Blend Distress Inks over the sky – Spun Sugar, Wilted Violet, Weathered Wood, Hickory Smoke, Stormy Sky and Black Soot. 
  • Splatter the sky with white gouache and leftover paint. 
  • Swipe Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste through the Large Falling Snow stencil. 
  • Lift the mask and watercolour the winter scene. I used Daniel Smith paints. 
  • Trim the watercolored panel to fit an Ivory A2 card base and attach with foam adhesive. 
  • Stamp a greeting from the CZ Design Good Cheer set in Versamark Ink on Black card and white heat emboss. 
  • Trim the sentiment to a skinny banner and add with foam adhesive. 

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

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

  1. This is so cute and I loved seeing the results of your Distress Ink blending on watercolor paper. I just have Distress Inks not Distress Oxides and appreciated all your tips. Thanks!

  2. Really enjoyed watching the design come together, stunning blended sky. Thank you for sharing inspiration & advice x

  3. Your winter scene was outstanding and the water coloring and ink blending unique. I liked the Nordic houses and am more traditional. So pretty.
