Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I’m thrilled to share the No Line Watercolor Technique with you today. It was scheduled for my Facebook LIVE yesterday but I had technical difficulties … well, it took me to more chances but I finally got my video!! It is too cool and pretty not to share.
I’m using the Daffodil Daydream stamp set, it is such a beautiful flower to illustrate and do this technique with.
I invite you to watch the video along with me … I can’t wait to show you the simple steps it takes to create such a gorgeous card. You are going to fall in love with this technique because it’s going to make you look like a real artist! I’m no paint pro, but I sure like the way this looks.
As simple tip is too keep your darker colors in the recesses of your image. I also kept my water painter on the dryer side … it still has water but it easier to control your color when it’s not over wet, and the results are amazing. The dimensions for this card are also simple; Old Olive Card base is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ … the front is a piece of watercolor paper measuring 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″. The watercolor piece I stamped on measures 3-1/2″ x 2-1/4″ so my Old Olive mat was 3-3/4″ x 2-1/2″. I just used scrap pieces for my greeting.
The greeting comes from a brand new bundle … the Very Best Occasions Bundle! That is also where the triple edge punch comes from that I decked out my daffodil with. It’s a great addition to my stamp & punch collection – I’ll be using them both many, many times.
I hope you enjoyed the video, especially those who joined me last night to support me LIVE before the internet went down.
Have a wonderful day! Thank you
Here is a list of the supplies I used in creating this card …
