Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I have a simple watercolor card to share. With the availability of two sets of Watercolor Brush Markers (Spring Garden and Winter Wonderland), I find myself keep reaching out for them to do quick watercoloring. The lovely Wispy Begonia Stamp/Die Bundle has simple yet intricate outline stamps. This set is perfect for any type of coloring!
Firstly, let’s talk about the composition. When you stamp a design, it is a good idea to start with the largest and most prominent image first. I stamped the yellow begonia with Warm Sunshine Ink. With the coordinating die-cut pieces as masks, I then stamped the leaves and another begonia. I like to keep the flower arrangement in a cluster and that is what I did here.
I usually do the “wet-on-wet” approach when coloring larger images. That means I first applied a tiny bit of water first, then I applied the watercolor brush markers’ colors. Once the colors mix, you can just sit back and relax and enjoy the simple watercoloring. The sentiment was stamped in Embossing Ink and then embossed in Pure White Embossing Powder.
Once I finished coloring the flowers, I applied gray color to the background. I used Halftone Stencil as a guide and added Silver Metallic Watercolor. This is a rather safe and controlled way to add some seemingly random spots to the background. A piece of gray card stock (from Celebrations 6×6 Paper Pack) and Rock Collection Enamel Dots are the right embellishments for this colorful design.
You can stamp multiple sets of watercolor cards and take them with you on-the-go. With the portable Watercolor Brush Markers, you can create anywhere at any time! I hope today’s card inspires you to create! Thank you so much for stopping by!
