Watercolor card using watercolor markers

The Focus

Started by printing this stamp set in a floral arrangement on a mixed media paper.

I wanted to create a 5 by 7 card because I preferred to paint a bigger flower not tiny floral clusters.

I printed the image in light beige color so I could create a no line coloring effect.

Colors Used

Started water coloring the flower using Karin Watercolor Markers. Pale pink concentrating on the base of the petals and fading towards the tip, leaving a pale wash of color for highlights. After two layers of pink I added a little olive green to the base of some petals and added a light wash of gold on the highlighted areas for a warmth. Finally, I added warm grey wherever it is supposed to be shaded.

The leaves on the top are colored with olive green and the leaves on the bottom are colored with curry.

I added some splatters of white acrylic paint and some gold watercolor paint.

And then, I used the sentiment from Wplus 9. It is a very old set of sentiment stamp. I stamped the sentiment directly on top of the colored image with Versamark ink and embossed using wow gold embossing powder.

For embellishment, I added a few gold sequins from my stash. I then layered this panel on a gold foiled cardstock and then adhered it to a 5 by 7 side folding cardbase made of heavyweight cardstock.

That finishes my card.
