Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’ve got 3 cards I’d like to share with you that highlights watercoloring with Pigment Sprinkles and the alluring “Beautiful Day” stamp set. Both are slated for retirement and will be gone after June 2nd.
Water coloring is so easy … just sprinkle and spritz!! I do use the AquaPainters to help move some of the water around. You will want to begin with our watercolor paper … I like to secure it with some washi tape. The washi tape will hold it down after you spritz with water.
I believe in … “Less is More”, start out light with both your Pigment Sprinkles and then with the water. You can always add more but it’s a little harder to take away. However … if you have to “take away” and pull off some of that water – grab some paper towels, they soak up nicely.
Check out our first sample with our flower …
Our flower was cut out and mounted onto some designer paper in black and white, this really makes the flower pop.
Using the sample layout …
Even when you bring in some color, the flower still pops. By embossing the background with the Layered Leaves (also retiring) you add some texture that compliments the flower.
I have one more sample for you … this one highlights the pretty butterfly from the set.
After this one dried, I added the Wink of Stella and some glitter dots to add a little sparkle … so pretty. I wish I could have found the purple one, also …. very pretty.
This is such a fun and easy technique and you can experiment with colors and really create an amazing butterfly or flower.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope I sparked some interest in trying your hand at watercoloring. Save some time to enjoy this upcoming weekend, it’s supposed to be wonderful outside.
Have a great day ~
