Breathtaking Bouquet - Drop Watercolour Technique - Video Tutorial

I really enjoyed creating today's cards. I'm no watercolour expert but this technique is so easy and it gives beautiful results.

I used the Drop Watercolour technique to create these cards. You first get the card wet with clean water and then you pick up your colour and just touch it to the wet areas. The colour blooms out on the wet surface and colours your images. The Video below shows you how I did this.

This was my very first attempt and I love this card, it's my favourite of the two here. I still find creating videos a little stressful sometimes and trying to recreate anything technical doesn't always go to plan :o) I think my second card came out fine, but this one went just a little better without having to worry about all things camera while creating it :o)

I used the same colours of ink for both cards, just changing the card base for each of them.

The colours used are Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam ... with just a little Crumb Cake.

I stamped the large background stamp using my Stamparatus with Versamark ink. The image was then heat embossed with White powder.

The sentiment is from the Label Me Bold stamp set. I stamped this with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with Clear powder.

The Watercolour card I used is not from Stampin' Up! I own lots of different ones and buy them in bulk. I have linked SU's below if you are interested in it.

Here is the Video ...


Note: If you use A4 as your standard sheet of card – follow the metric measurements (cms).
