Today is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog and I am so excited about this one! I had a card like this in mind for a while using the Lovely Blooms stamp set and this exceeded even what I had envisioned (and that NEVER happens). The best part, it came together so quickly. This is super fun and really easy to reproduce!
I stamped using Versamark ink onto Strathmore Mixed Media paper. Quick and sort of random with nothing too fussy. Then I heat embossed using white embossing powder. I love the half wreath feel so I added this great sentiment from the set using the same method. Then all I did was color using Winsor and Newton paints. I got the image wet and dropped in color. For some I let the colors combine but with others (purple specifically) it is best to let things dry first and then layer color on top. With paints, you can do that and avoid muddiness. I added these sweet little Clear Round Drops from Studio Katia to mimic the look of water.
I hope this will encourage you to try your hand at watercoloring too. It doesn’t all have to be in the lines or perfect! Hope you have a great day. Thanks so much for stopping by!
