Birthday Blossom and Watercolor
I’m going to let you in on one of my secrets….practice always makes improvement. I am not sure with art their is ever perfection! But, through practice we can learn how to create beautiful things. I have always wanted to be able to watercolor and it actually look like something. So when I learned that Online Card Classes was offering a Watercolor Mediums class I was all in. I love learning all about the different ways to use Mediums in card making. This was such a fun class and the ladies make watercoloring so approachable. I will be sharing many projects over the next few weeks that feature techniques that were taught in this class.
I love the idea of incorporating watercolors into my stamping world because it allows me to use things that are normally just laying around waiting for me to try and make something real. So the opportunity to add watercolor to my stamping was amazing!!!
The other person I need to mention is Shawn DeOliver . He is a fellow InKing Royalty and was the person I saw use this particular technique that made me want to try it! Check out his blog Shawn Stamps.
Today’s Card features the stamp set Birthday Blossoms. I really love the sketched look of the flowers in this set. And the sentiment is from Butterfly Basics
I don’t have may details about this card. The flowers are embossed with white embossing powder. Then I watercolored over the entire layer. I used Daniel Smith Watercolors and Windsor Newton Watercolors. Allow the Watercolored piece to dry before adding the sentiment.
These are my fav. of the Daniel Smith Watercolors that I have
