Hey lovelies, Tracy here with you today.
Im going through the moving process at the moment but I still needed some cards so I decided to do a mini series of super quick and easy cards that anyone can create along with some hints and tips.
One of the most common things I see crafters, especially new crafters talk about struggling with is watercolouring, and I get you it is a scary thing to think about. BUT it is probably one of the most fun things to work with and can also be the most insanely easy mediums to colour with, once you realise that it doesnt have to be detailed and can be just a simple wash like this card.
This was as simple as adding some colours to a glass matt along with water and them smooshing some watercolour card over the top, I let it dry after one later and then added another. Once it was fully dry I used the Flourishing Note stamp set and stamped over the top and then die cut the panel out using theDotted Patterns Set 1.
If you want to add a little something extra to your simple cards try using a coloured card base, I love the look of Kraft card so used that for this one, I also adhered the panel using foam tape to add some dimension and then finished off with some Majestic sequins and some gold gel pen details.
The reason this technique is great for beginners is it allows you to see how watercolour reacts and it also gives you chance to work with the colours and just get a good feel.
It is also a technique you just cannot go wrong with it.
I hope you like the card and really encourage anyone who hasnt to try this technique, you can also use water reactive inkpads or any water based mediums.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have an amazing day.
Yes, I am one who finds watercolour intimidating, which means I have special appreciation for those – like you – who embrace it so enthusiastically! Your card: gorgeous! Love the pretty wash that enhances the detailed lines of the image! Maybe I should give my watercolours a bit of attention….
