Have you noticed lately around the card making community that there is a current trend for watercolouring … and not just the usual colour with markers or ink and blend with aqua painter / blender pen. Card makers are trying all sorts of washes, hand lettering and effects. I have watched a few videos and have been practicing a little here and there! I can tell you … these girls are clever! It is NOT as easy as it looks. 🙂
This was a card I saw on Kristina Werner’s blog … yes … I subscribe … I love her STUFF and she is responsible for me spending far too much money at the Simon Says Stamp online shop!
I did my watercolouring on the SU! white shimmer card … which is so fantastic for watercolouring. No pilling of the paper at all. I also added some Wink of Stella shimmer pen to the flowers. The back ground has a watercolour wash over it … and the flowers (from a SU! set from the current Occasions Catalogue that I played with at Leonie’s) are heat embossed with white embossing powder and more ink added. I used a paint brush and ink from the stamp pad. I actually was kinda happy with the result – especially for my first attempt of this type of watercolouring . And … I have since bought the stamp set that Kristina used for her sample. You should check out her video tutorial … it is brilliant!
