Creative Coloring with Erum: No-Line Watercolor on Build-A-Flower: Cattleya

by Erum Tasneem

Hi there! Erum here with another dose of Creative Coloring with Erum. Today I will be sharing another no-line watercolor card but this time I will color a slightly difficult image. If you want an easier version of no-line watercolor or would like to practice more, visit THIS post and check out the video. You will see that that video is far easier and explains the very basic way to handle no-line watercolor.

My card features the Build-A-Flower: Cattleya which I have colored using the Watercolor 36 Pan Set.  I started by stamping the image in antique linen distress ink since it is water-reactive and won’t show prominently after watercolor.

Next, I used a light wash of Crimson watercolor to add a layer of color to the petals. I also added a more concentrated pigment of the same color to show depth. For adding more depth, I used Grapevine watercolor. To add interest, I also added a tiny bit of yellow. For the green portions, I used Bamboo, Frayed Leaf, and Evergreen watercolors.

Once I was done coloring the flowers, I doodled stamens. Next, I added a light color wash of greens and a bit of yellow. Also, to add a bit of texture to the background, I added splatters of Forest Glades and Jet Black Watercolor.

Once the watercolor was dry, I added splatters of diluted white chalk paint. For the sentiment, I stamped it on a piece of cardstock and cut it to size. This, I adhered to the card front with foam tape.

To finish, I added a few crystals.
