Hi everyone, I hope you are doing well.
For today, I wanted to use gorgeous and super versatile images from Beautiful Flowers 4 stamp setby Simon Says Stamp.
The set contains eight beautiful sentiments to create cards for different occasions.
Easy Rainbow Watercolor
This time, I wanted to do a rainbow watercolor while trying for the very first time Karin Markers.
I heard these pens were great for hand lettering but as I love trying new mediums I decided to give them a try for cardmaking.
These markers contain highly pigmented liquid ink that can be blended with water.
They are blendable.
They have a flexible nylon brush-like nib that made easy the color application on small areas.
They are transparent and the pigment has great dispersion.
The colors are vibrant!
I love the look and feel of the ink when it dries.
- So I first stamped the images using Versafine Onix ink on 300 grams Cold Press Arches Watercolor Paper.
- Then, I simply applied a little bit of the different pigments near the center part of the flower directly from the marker to the paper and I spread it towards the edged using a wet brush.
- I didn’t allow the washes to dry but instead, I tried to blend the different washes.
- Once I applied colors I die cut the panels using the larger rectangle from Wonky Rectangles die set.
Here is another card using the same image from Beautiful Flowers 4 stamp set but this time I didn’t stamp steam but the whole background.
I applied color in the same way for the card above and I added a pre-printed sentiment from CZ Designs Reverse Love.
That’s all for today.
I hope you like these ideas
