I enjoyed playing with my watercolour pencils so much on Monday that I was inspired to break them out for watercolour Wednesday!!! I wanted to create a quick, simple and not to messy background and I'm happy to report that today's technique is all those things 🙂 The hardest part was choosing which colours to use 😅.
So all you need are Watercolour pencils , white cardstock and either a waterpainter or a brush and a small amount of water. Next scribble your chosen colours across the cardstock. Now it doesn't have to be precise so don't over think it!. I wanted full coverage so I scribbled all across the cardstock in varying width bands.
Next I took my water painter and moisened the bristles. You don't want them sopping wet as we're creating a mess free watercolour 😉 I started by brushing side to side on the lightest colour, Calypso coral.
I then moved onto the pink then the purple colours, melon mambo and rich razzleberry. Now you could completly brush out the lines but I rather liked them so left them in. But at this stage blending the colours is easy.
The piece above was my test piece and all I did for todays card was use a larger piece of cardstock!! Once I'd made the background I used the large floral image from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set and heat embossed it in white.
I also tore a stip of vellum and heat embossed my sentiment in white. I wrapped the vellum around the panel and secured it at the back.
