Creative Coloring with Erum: Easy Watercolor on Sunlit Flowers

by Erum Tasneem

Hello friends! Erum here and I have another easy watercolor card to share with you today! My card features the Sunlit Flowers Stamp Set which I colored with the Watercolor 36 Pan Set.

I started by stamping several flowers and leaves onto watercolor paper in Clear Embossing Ink. Next, I used Pure White Embossing Powder to heat emboss these images. After this, I used Fresh Lemon and Crimson Watercolors to color the flowers.

First, I laid down the Fresh Lemon Watercolor closer to the base of the petal and then I added Crimson Watercolor near the tip of the petal. Then, I mixed both the shades a bit for a two-tone look. The look of each petal will vary because this is mindless watercolor and is done when you need to unwind and relax.

For the greens, I used Forest Glades and Evergreen Watercolors.

After coloring, I added diluted splatters of Crimson Watercolor onto the flowers for interest and set them aside to dry.

On the Spicy Yoghurt Cardstock panel, I added splatters of brown and black watercolors. Then, I stamped the sentiment from Candlelight Stamp Set in Obsidian Ink on a different color and type of cardstock for interest. I adhered this on the card front with foam tape. Next, I proceeded to adhere the images on foam tape as well. To finish, I applied a few sequins.

The love the pink and the orange of the water colour with the splatter. This card is gorgeous, Erum! Enjoy your time at creativations! Is there going to be any posts from Altenew’s time there?

Beautiful card……I must have blinked…did you wet the image/paper after heat embossing? Also, I am using the water brushes…1st time….do you squeeze the pen to get more water on the brush? I know it should be simple but I tried doing that and there was too much water… any suggestions/help will be appreciated…..

Really pretty and I like the white embossing and the watercolor effect. It almost appears like it is velum with a grey tone. It is quite lovely!
