A Magnolia for Her

by Marika

Hello everyone, it’s Marika. Today I am sharing a colouring tutorial with two cards made with Magnolias for Her -set. This stamp set is the first one that I had from Altenew and I fell in love with these gorgeous magnolias straight away. Here are my cards:

Here is another card made with the same technique as the first one. I messed up the background while colouring so I cut it out with my scissors and made this background with light blue splatters. It kind of reminds me of that warm spring rain – the promise of a warm summer days to come.  After I finished my card I thought it missed something and after a few chats with a dear friend of mine, I decided to add another branch to it. At least for me, sometime if you let the card to rest for a day or two, it is easier to finish it.

I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour set to colour these flowers. The colours used are the following: No. 20, 34, 44, 46, 47, 53, 61. Here is a colouring tutorial if you wish to see how I made this card.

I hope you liked it and got some inspiration to use this gorgeous Magnolia stamp again! See you soon!

Marika, First let me say that this card is breathtaking. I would also like to thank you for the tutorial, but MOST OF ALL, THANKS SO MUCH for giving us the exact colors of watercolor that you used. So many times I want to copy an artists card so badly, but I have the worst time matching up the colors. This is an tremendous help for me and I greatly appreciate it!

Marika you inspire me. I just recently purchased the watercolor set you worked with in the video. I believe my first attempt at a watercolored card was inspired by another of your cards with Persian Motifs. I thought it was so fun to work with. Thank you for continuing to share your talent.
