No Line Watercolor with Blended Seasons

Hello and Happy Tuesday!Today is such an exciting day...I get to register for OnStage Live in Orlando for November! I can't explain just how excited I am to go. It will be my first ever event in person so, I'm over the moon with excitement as this is the 30 Year celebration so, I know it's a BIG deal, HUGE even. Anyhoo, I digress.

Today I want to share a card with you that I did over the weekend. I decided to play with the "no line watercolor" technique and was pleasantly surprised with the results. Of course, I am madly in love with the Blended Seasons stamp set so of course I reached for that. I firmly believe the reason I love this set so much is it's versatility. It's appropriate for any occasion, any time of the year. All you need to do is change up your color combinations and run with it. Here, I used the new Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 collection, Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green and Crushed Curry along with my Aqua Painters.
The trick here is to stamp the image using a light colored ink such as Sahara Sand using 2nd generation stamping and moisten the image before applying the color, but don't make it too wet (keep a paper towel handy to blot up excess water) then add color and blend out the colors with the Aqua Painter, and add more color where needed and blend again. Be sure to watch the video where I walk you through the steps.

The measurements for recreating this card are Balmy Blue CS card base 4.25" x 11" scored and folded at 5.5" Night of Navy CS panel 4" x 5.25" and Watercolor Paper 3.75" x 5". I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White CS .75" wide and long enough to accommodate my sentiment using Night of Navy ink. I bannered one end and adhered it to the bottom left corner of the card.

This card was a lot of fun to do and really didn't take much time at all to complete. I truly hope this card encourages you to pull out those Watercolor pencils. Don't let them intimidate you and see how amazing they are to work with. I promise you will love them!
Happy Stamping,
