VIDEO: Lydia’s Crafty Corner – Watercolor with Marker Refills

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone! Lydia here. Today, I’ll be showing how to create an opulent watercolor background using liquid watercolor brush marker refills and the Ornate Foliage Stamp Set.

I started with a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of watercolor cardstock and stamped over the outline images from Ornate Foliage Stamp Set. I stamped the images using Embossing Ink and then heat set using Rose Gold Embossing Powder. Once this was done, I set about coloring the images using Watercolor Marker Refills as liquid watercolor. I used Purple Wine, Desert Night, and Emerald Marker Refills for the images and Lagoon Marker Refill for the background.

When this was dry, I cut this in half so I could use the two panels on separate cards. For the first one, I matted the panel onto Gold Mirror Cardstock and added a Gold Mirror Cardstock sentiment using Fancy Hello Die. For this to pop from the background, I added this onto a vellum strip. For the second card, I cut the Fancy Hello Die into the panel and added some Gold Mirror Cardstock behind the cutout. As I was then left with a beautiful die-cut sentiment, I matted this onto some Gold Mirror Cardstock and Deep Iris Cardstock to create a further card.

To see how these cards came together, please check out the video below or over on YouTube:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you get inspired to watercolor with your watercolor brush marker refills!

These are beautiful. This is a great idea to extend the use of that one panel that took some time to create! Ending up with three cards is surely a bonus! :)

Love your work. I want to try this and hope it comes out as beautiful as yours. Just a quick ? Is it easier to use the refills instead of watercolor sets?
