Hello

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Tutorials, Videos

Hello everyone.. it’s Holly here today with another watercolor card and process video. I’m using the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely  set and some Gansai Tambi Watercolors.

I started by stamping the flower image onto a piece of watercolor paper and then I heat embossed it using some White embossing powder. Then I taped the image panel to a board using some painter’s tape. I added some clear water around the image and then I dropped in some Light Blue using a wet paintbrush. This is the wet on wet technique. Then I heat set the area with my heat tool. I repeated the same process with the rest of the image. Adding in color within each embossed area and drying in between layers.

Once the image was dry I trimmed the panel to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and added it to a top folding Black card base. I stamped Hello from the same set and heat embossed it onto a piece of Black card stock using White embossing powder and trimmed it out with my large scissors. I adhered it to the image with some foam tape. This is a great image to practice watercolor with, it has lots of great large images and it can be embossed.

You can see more details on how I created this in the video below…

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Are you enjoying all the watercolor tips and techniques the design team has been sharing? I am not all that comfortable with watercolors, but lately I have been stepping out of my comfort zone and using them more!

Have you ever tried to do paint splatters? I have to admit, it took me several attempts before I was happy with my splatters!

Today, I am working with Lawn Fawn’s Year Seven stamp set and Prima Confections – Tropical watercolors.

I stamped the piñata image onto watercolor cardstock with Memento Black ink. Once the ink was completely dried, I painted the image using Prima Confections watercolor. The image is then cut out and set aside.

Time to work on the background of the card. I randomly stamped the candies and confetti stamps over the panel. Now it is time to do the paint splatters! First, I choose a magenta color paint and watered the color down. Using a paint brush, I soaked up the watered down paint. Over the cardstock panel, I lightly tapped the end of the paint brush, tilting the brush in the direction I wanted the splatters to go. I repeated this process with each color of paint.

Once the paint dried, it is time to piece the card together. A piece of white twine is attached to the piñata image. A foam dot is attached to the back of the piñata and attached to the background panel. The twine is wrapped around the top, to make the piñata look like it is hanging for the top. The sentiment is stamped and embossed onto black cardstock. The sentiment is then cut into strips and attached to the card!

Thank you for stopping by today! Don’t forget to stop by throughout the month for more watercolor tips!

Have a great day!
