The Beauty of Watercoloring

Hello Stampin’ Friends!

And welcome to my blog as we take a look at the Beauty of Watercoloring today. I would like to share the replay of my Facebook LIVE that shows you step by step how to create 4 different Watercolor Wash backgrounds. With that I will share the cards I created with those backgrounds. Here is the video ….

Here is the card I shared in the video from the first background I created. This technique reflects the Ombre look as the color fades from dark to light. I used the Splendid Stems dies to frame my greeting… and you all know how I love my greetings!!

If you would like more information about this card CLICK HERE to view the original post.

The second card highlights the dual color watercolor wash where you start one color from the top and the second from the bottom and let them meet in the middle … gives you a brand new color there!

The third card is a blending of multiple colors! If you’re not sure what colors go together … let nature be your guide! Here I used the colors of an early sunset, when the skies are pink and blue with a few shades of purple. I framed part of the background and used it for my moon!

The fourth card I made had multiple colors and I added Sea Salt which pulled up some of the color which created some “spots”. This time I die cut my background … this technique is not just for backgrounds but can be used in many ways!

Full details for my butterfly card can be found HERE.

I want to thank you for joining me today on my blog … and invite you to join me tonight for my Facebook LIVE where I will be showing you an easy & beautiful technique watercoloring heat embossing images.

Take good care ~

Here is a list of the ingredients that I used for one or both of the cards. Remember, every $50 purchased, is rewarded with a exclusive Sale-a-bration item.
