PPP Watercolor Blog Hop!

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop!!
WatercolorBloghopIt’s no wonder watercolour is still a hot trend in cardmaking and my most favourite medium is definitely watercolour. I bet all of you love seeing beautiful watercolor projects from the design team members and Guest Designers in this hop :D

YoonsunHur-20150605-PPP-Watercolor01For my first card, I used Essentials by Ellen Wild GardenBe-YOU-Tiful Dies as my main supplies. 1)I loosely coloured on the watercolour panel with several distress inks in rainbow order –Festive Berries, Dried Marigold, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Peacock FeathersSeedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry. 2)I die cut from the white cardstock using Essentials by Ellen Wild Garden, positioned them on the coloured panel, adhered them in place. Then, I added machine stitches. 3)I die cut Be-YOU-Tiful from the red cardstock three times, affixed all pieces together. 4)I embellished some clear sequins(4mm, 6mm, 8mm) for finishing touches.
YoonsunHur-20150605-PPP-Watercolor03For my second card, I used MFT Modern Blooms, Watercolor Flowers, and Written in Watercolor Stamp sets. 1)I inked the flower using Distress ink and then spritzed the inked stamp with water using a Mini Mister. I then stamped the flower on the watercolour panel, dry it using heat tool. This technique was repeated several times. 2)I lightly traced the outline of the flowers with black multiliner. 3)For the sentiment, I stamped it with MFT Black Licorice hybrid ink. 4)I added some clear sequins(4mm, 6mm, 8mm) as always :D
YoonsunHur-20150605-PPP-Watercolor05Honestly, this card wasn’t my original plan for this hop but, I realised I need to try another watercolour card without flowers. Lol!

For my last watercolour card, I used MFT Stars & Wishes, Lucky Stars Die-namics as my main supplies. For my ombre watercolour background, I painted on the watercolour panel with After Midnight, Lush Lagoon, Blu Raspberry, Summer Splash dye inks (from the bottom to the top) using a wide paint brush. When I make watercolour background I brush the water over the panel before apply the colours. It will allow the colours to blend more naturally.

  1. All three cards are wonderful. I love the bold backgrounds and then the use of the white die cuts of the first and third card. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Oh my goodness – they’re all beautiful. My favorite is your second one – I’m going to have to give that a try! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. ALL of these are outstanding and so beautiful! Love the way you used the dies and your watercoloring is so lovely.

  4. Stunning! Your coloring on the two flower cards is simply stunning! And an awesome job on the star card as well! Often times we forget the guys in our lives when we think of watercolors, but you nailed it!

  5. Your cards are gorgeous! Love the first one with the beautiful watercolor on the background and the white cut out flowers. Just beautiful!

  6. WOW. I love all three cards. I’m really drawn to the vibrant colors of the first two cards and the dimensionality in the first card is amazing.

  7. Thanks for the tip about applying water to the paper before adding the inks as a way for the colors to blend more naturally. All three of your cards are beautiful.

  8. I love them all you are so great at water coloring Yonsun
    but if you ask which my fav it is the second card stunning using that water color
    love love love
    Hugs, Monika

  9. Lovely, simply lovely. There’s a LOT of detail in all of them. I really like the simplicity of the 2nd card. I might be able to pull that off if I keep practicing. Well done!
