Hi there! Today’s card is another adventure for me in the world of watercolor. This is my second attempt and I’ve used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints this time around. I’m still not quite brave enough to watercolor without embossing the image, so I stamped this Stampendous Timeless Rose stamp first in versamark ink on a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock and embossed with a fine detail white embossing powder.
These paints were fun to work with and not too difficult to get a little bit of shading. I started out using a Princeton Neptune Script Squirrel Size 1 brush, painted about a third of the large rose and then decided for now, I’m much more comfortable using waterbrush pens. I’m a firm believer there’s no right or wrong way of doing something when it comes to art as long as you’re enjoying the process and happy with your results.
To finish the card, I cut a 1″ wide strip of patterned paper and adhered it to the bottom of the card and then adhered a thin piece of craft foam to the back of my watercolor cardstock to raise it up and give a little extra dimension.
A few sequins and a sentiment and it’s ready for delivery.
Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
