Faux Watercoloring Needs Love Too!

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello!  It’s Lisa here today, and as you’ve seen we’ve been focusing on all things watercoloring this month on the blog.  So I have a card to share that can still fall under the watercoloring tutorial, but with no paints or water… Now I know what you’re thinking, shut the front door!  But there are so many great products available now that give the impression of watercoloring, without the work!  Here are just a few of such products…

My Favorite Things Written In Water Stamp Set

 

SugarPea Designs Watercolor Brushstrokes

 

My Favorite Things Patterned Paper Wash 6 x 6 Paper Pad

Altenew Watercolor Wonders Stamp Set

 

And here is what I’ve created for my “faux watercolor” project…

To create this card I started by diecutting my sentiment into my “watercolored” patterned paper from the My Favorite Things Wash Paper Pad.  I made sure to keep all of the tiny inside cuts off to the side and in a pile so that I would have them when I was laying the word cuts back into place.  I then used two other papers from the same paper pad and die cut the words to inlay over my first cut. Once the sentiment was done I stamped my butterfly image from the newly released Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set ,also by my Favorite Things, onto separate cardstock.  I then cut it out and adhered it to my cardbase.  Of course it wasn’t finished without some bling so I busted out my Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins, and ta-da!

I was able to achieve the watercolor look with out any mess.  Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE watercoloring, and there is no mess as far as I’m concerned, but if you shy away from the paints then I wanted to share with you another option.

Hope to see you play along in our latest watercoloring challenge for a chance to win goodies!

Happy Crafting!

Watercolor Background with Altenew

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I love to work with bright colors, but I am switching it up today! Throughout the month, the design team is showcasing different watercolor products and techniques on the MarkerPOP blog!

Today, I am creating a watercolor background print. I am using the Altenew’s You Make Me Happy stamp set (currently out of stock, but check out the other Altenew floral stamp sets HERE) and ZIG Clean Color markers.

To start this card, I stamped the images with white ink and embossing powder. The embossing powder creates the raised edges to help keep the paint in the right place. I used soft colors to fill in the image. The stems are colored in using ZIG Clean Color – May Green (047 ). The center of the flower is colored in with Light Carmine (021). Light Pink (026) was used on the inside of the flower petals. To fill in the background, Light Blue (036) was used.  To finish the card, the simple sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Hi!  It is Lisa here with you today and I have a sweet little camping scene to share with you today that I have created with the Avery Elle Glamper Campers Stamp Set, Zig® Clean Color Real Brush Markers, Gansai Tambi Watercolors, and My Favorite Things Blueprints 31.  Take a peek…

Clean Color Real Brush Markers Used: Light Green, Yellow Green, Mustard, Yellow, Pink Fl. Pink, Light Carmine, Wine Red, Light Violet, Lilac, Light Blue, Cobalt Blue, and Black.

For all of the stamped images I used the Clean Colors, because of their vibrant and fun colors.  Plus I love that you can use them with or without water.  For the banner I simple colored and for most everything else I used them as a watercolor.  Now for the background I used my Gansai Tambi Watercolor Set because I had a large area to cover, and I am just not very good using the markers on larger areas.  I also like being able to add layers of colors when creating backgrounds and the Gansai Tambi are just easier for me to do this.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are getting a chance to join us in our watercoloring challenges this month!  They are located on the right side of the blog!

Happy Crafting!

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…
