Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop!!
It’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
For my first card, I used Essentials by Ellen Wild Garden & Be-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 Feathers, Seedless 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.
For 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
Honestly, 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.
