Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Ready for Spring? I’m thrilled to revisit the No Line Watercolor Technique with you today. Daffodils always remind me of spring and with the temperature hitting 40 degrees today, it will feel like spring for many of us.
I love this watercoloring technique and it is much easier that you think. It’s not a quick card but it is very relaxing and you will fall in love with the No Line Watercolor technique as well.
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 this beautiful card, and the video will inspire you to try out this No Line Watercoloring technique.
Have a wonderful day! Thank you

Such a beautiful card and beautiful stamp set. Daffodils are one of my very favorite flowers. You inspired me to start making some spring cards with it. Thanks Linda!
