Trying Something New With Watercolors!

May 15, 2019

Hi there! It’s Sara here today, and I have a new project for you featuring ModaScrap products.

I love watercolors and it’s always a good occasion to try something new: today I die cut all the pieces from a piece of watercolor paper and then coloured everything with watercolors.

Here are the steps:

  • Prepare a base for your card and add some splatters with a black ink.
  • For the belt you need to partial die cut a piece of kraft cardstock, put your cardstock in the big shot leaving outside the finish part of the die and the rest of the cardstock, repeat the same process on the other side.
  • Die cut all the leaves and the poppies, colour them.
  • Glue all the pieces down to the belt and add a bow made with rope.

That’s it!

Hope you like it!

Step 1: Die cut the main panel

  • Die cut a stitched rectangle using one of the Stitched Rectangles dies from watercolor cardstock.

Step 2: Stamping

  • Stamp the image from the Krista Schneider Garden Party set with a the light grey My Favorite Things Grout Gray Hybrid Ink.
  • Stamp the sentiment with Versafine Clair Morning Mist.

Step 3: Coloring

  • Color the image with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a damp watercolor brush.
  • Add dots with a white gel pen.
  • Add shine and dimension to the little blue flowers with Nuvo Jewel Drops Sea Breeze.

Step 4: Assemble the card

  • Mount the watercolor panel onto a piece of patterned paper from the ModaScrap Color of Puppies Girl 6×6 paper pad before adhering it to a gray card-base.

And it’s done!

I used two different easy watercolor techniques with a bit of die cutting and of course – glitter!! Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading
