WPlus9 Watercolor Bleaching


Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! I’m thrilled to welcome back Kelly Latevola as a guest designer on our blog! Have you seen this technique in action before? Kelly white embossed the WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquet Dahlia stamp set and sentiment, and used Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, and Salty Ocean Distress inks to get that gorgeous blended blue! Want to know how she made the floral portion lighter? Watch the video for details!

  1. Beautiful card, Kelly! Thanks for the tutorial on watercolor bleaching! This looks so fun! I can’t wait to give it a try! Thanks for sharing this cool technique! :)

  2. Wow! That is amazing…the flower looks so dimensional and amazing. I love this technique! Thank you for this great video.

  3. Beautiful card. I was looking at this stamp online a few days ago, and wondering how best to use it. Seek and ye shall find! Thanks for some great ideas!

  4. Kelly, what a stunning card, I have seen this done before but never with the same stnning outcome. The added shadow truly makes it look like the flowers are 3D. Originally I thought you had cut out and added the flowers to another background. So have to try this.

  5. What an amazing technique – love the tips you shared on the video too, Kelly (thanks!) Love the look of the bleached, lighter flower image on that bold blue BG!

  6. I love your work, Kelly! This is a beautiful card. It would be fun to make a whole set of these in different colors.

  7. What a beautiful card! I definitely need to try out this technique. I’m completely in love with the blue hues in this (but then, blue IS my favourite colour!)

  8. Wonderful video & creation. I will give this a try with embossing & the Distress Inks. I only have a Primary set of Copics and will need more practice to tackle that step. Have a BEE-utiful day!
