Hi everyone! It’s Laura here and today I am back with a soft looking floral card and a video showing how to create it.
The images I used today are from the Blooming Bunch Stamp Set and I decided to paint them using the no-line watercolor technique, using Distress Inks and Distress Oxides.
I started by stamping the florals on an A2 sized sheet of Canson XL watercolor cardstock, that I had previously die cut with the Darling Ribbon & Frames dies. The ink I used is the Fadeout Ink and, before starting to paint the actual images, I created an underpainting with Distress Inks. I wet the paper with clean clear water and added a very light layer of color.
I then moved on and painted the flowers and the leaves with Distress Oxides. I used Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries and Crushed Olive. Once I was done painting I added some splatters with the same Distress Oxides I used for the florals and with some Perfect Pearls diluted with water.
For the sentiment I used one of the dies in the Spring Bouquet Coordinating Dies to die cut some black cardstock. I glued it to the card with my Studio Katia Glue and then stamped the word sending from the Japanese Peony Stamp Set. To finish off the card front, I decorated it with some April Crystals. Lastly, I stamped the floral image and one of the sentiments in the Blooming Bunch stamp set on the inside of the card, using again Fadeout Ink.
And that’s my card for today! As I mentioned, I filmed a video tutorial showing you how to create this spring floral card with the no-line watercolor technique. You can watch it down below or directly on the Studio Katia channel.
Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!
