Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you how to watercolor with your stampin’ write markers. I used the new limited time Christmas Rose Stamp Set from the Christmastime is Here Suite as my focal image. You can use your Stampin’ Write markers or any other water based marker to watercolor with as long as you have the right surface. I am going to share with you a few tips and tricks on how to do just that in this post. But first lets look at my card shall we.
Tips & Tricks:
Once I had the outline of the Christmas Rose image heat set on the Fluid 100 watercolor paper (which by the way is a artist quality watercolor paper that released in art supply stores a few years back and was well received) it was time to start using my Stampin’ Write markers and aqua painter to start watercoloring. I started out with the rose and used real red and placed some colors down in each section and worked petal by petal to wet each section and expand the colors. Once I had the first layer down and had it dried I added some Cherry Cobbler and Merry Merlot markers to add shadows to the petals. Once that was done I repeated the process.
Once the roses where done I then worked on the leaves and pine needles. After that I worked on the berries and pinecones. I repeated the same process as above. I used the following colors to color the image; Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Merry Merlot, Shaded Spruce, Garden Green, Old Olive, Soft Suede, and Seaside Spray. Once I had the entire image dried I added it to a piece of the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper as a mat. I heat embossed my sentiment on a piece of Vellum Cardstock. I added this to the watercolor paper by wrapping the ends around and attaching it with a couple pieces of tear & tape. I then used liquid glue to attach the focal image to the mat, and then to the card base.
To finish off my card I added a few Basic Pearls to the card front, to add a little elegance to the card. I thought that the pearls added more than rhinestones to the card.
