Hello! Watercoloring continues to be really popular among cardmakers and there are lots and lots of ways to approach watercoloring. Today I am sharing a very easy technique you can do to create watercolor background and add shading to the focal image.
You can leave it just the way it is after adding block watercolor background, but I wanted to do little bit more to pop out the flower image here. So I used black ink pad, added water to soften the colors, and used a brush to put some shades onto the stamped image. Just light enough to help the image stand out. Then I added Wink of Stella for subtle shine and glittery look.
I also used My Favorite Things Inside and Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle die set to set the frame for the watercolor layer. I really am in love with this die set – it adds such a nice touch!
This technique is great for both new and seasoned stampers. I hope you give it a try!
