How-to Video: Two Tone Watercolor Flowers | Creative Coloring with Erum

by Erum Tasneem

Hi everyone! Erum here with a new card featuring the gorgeous Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm Stamp Set.

I heat embossed a couple of flowers, several leaves, and small bunches of flowers from the set in Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder on watercolor paper. Next, I scribbled Turquoise, Persian Blue, and Desert Night Watercolor Brush Markers onto the petal. The Desert Night Watercolor pigment was applied closer to the base of the petal only. After this, I dipped the water brush into clean water and then went over the pigment to spread it around a little and to activate it.

In some places, I applied more of Persian Blue pigment and in some places more of Turquoise. This is a more controlled version of the scribble-spritz watercolor technique I have shared earlier HERE.  For the leaves, I used Jet Black Watercolor Brush Marker.

For the card front, I applied water to the panel and added pigment from the Jet Black Watercolor Brush Marker. I used my water brush to spread it around and while the background was still wet, I added splatters to it fo interest. After drying it with the heat gun, I added more splatters of the same. Then I dried the panel again with the heat gun. Next, I added black paint splatters from the 36 Pan Watercolor Set. And then adhered the floral to the card front with foam tape and glued the leaves directly.

The sentiment was heat embossed in Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.

To finish, I added a few Antique Gold Sequins.

Thank you for stopping by.

Beautiful card Erum! I always enjoy your work and you explain things really well.
I have a quick question, do you have water in your water brush, or are you just dipping it in water? I have a hard time controlling the amount of water from my (filled) water brush and was wondering if that was my problem. Thanks!

Thank you! I do have water in the brush but I was not pressing the barrel, I was using the water from the cup.

This card is stunning! Thanks for the video! I always have a hard time imaging how the cards are created with watercolour without a video. You made it look so easy. Thanks for sharing, I learn something every time I watch one of your videos. And although, I have a long ways to go yet, I am getting better! And the floral stamp sets from Altenew have helped me too, they are just so pretty, they can’t help but make a pretty card.

I like the choice of flower to fill with the scribble color technique. I like the color combination. Great finished look!
