Adventures in watercoloring continues

 a closer look, thinking that this one was the watercolor makers phase. I have been playing with all the water coloring things I have been collecting and actually turning some of them into cards too.

 The green frame was done with some Kuretake watercolors for a piece that was used on a two paper diva's St. Patrick's day card that I have not posted yet... (so, this scrap is up on pop dots over the mice/bird image)


another Markers one. this one was barely wet so it did not warp as bad as some of the others done on smooth cardstock.

 These birds are from whippersanpper and the sentiment is Unity Stamps.

 Same birds with an Hero Arts sentiment.

 SU stipple hydrangea with distress inks.

 the sentiment is from Hero Arts.
that lace is unknown.

 hmmmm guessing the mouse/bird is Penny black and that get well die cut is from Paper Smooches.

 The leaf is from Fred B. Mullett, done with distress inks on the leaf and watercolor pencil for the background.

 That sentiment is from Two Paper Diva's ( same leaf, similar colors)

 a closer look at the sweet and sassy poppy background with an Hero Arts for Simon Says Stamp prayers diecut.

 The poppy was stamped with distress inks and colored with them also.

 a closer look at the blooms. ( Altenew Persian Motifs) stamped with Distress antique linen and colored with kuretake watercolors on smooth neenah.

 This is 5 1/2" square in real life.

 an Orange blossom version. ( not really sure what color these flowers should be, so my brain said lets go bright) or rather the colors in the kuretake pallet seem to lean on the bright side. hahaha
the diecut panels are taped together on the backside for the embedded look.

now this one almost got tossed. trying for a snow look is really hard with the watercolors I have so, that may be something I stick to copic's with. he looks like a frozen snowball for sure ( Unity Stamps) this is just a bitty one.

You are doing so well with the watercolors, Stacy. I would love it if in an upcoming post, talk about the non-watercolor paper you've tried using and which is the best as well as not so good, especially when you use water or a wet brush. Seems to me you like the Neenah and not that impressed with the Distress (watercolor? stamping?), but I cannot be sure. Paper is just as important as paint in this endeavor and something that is often not even considered. Thanks! xoxo

Wow! Each and every card is AWESOME! Great watercolouring techniques with different products. They are all amazing, but the stippled one is so unique. I have never seen that before --- very cool!! xx
