Layered Watercolor

Hi there! I hope your week is going well. I wanted to share a card I created featuring Layered Watercolor...

I used THESE Zig Markers as my watercolor medium and did a similar technique as seen in THIS previous post, but took it a step further and added more watercolor layers on top to intensify the colors and give it an artsy, organic look...

I started by stamping the floral images from THIS stamp set on a panel I cut using THIS die. I used THIS ink since I was working with watercolor and didn't want it to smear. I quickly colored the images using the watercolor markers and then gave them a spray with water. I let it dry completely before adding a second wash of watercolor on top. I repeated the process to add a third layer on top, leaving most of the color on the image.

I finished off the card by adding the greeting. I cut THIS word die from some black cardstock and added THIS on top followed by a coat of THIS. I stamped the sentiments from the set to go in front of the die-cut word and mounted the panel on to a black cardstock using THIS foam for dimension.

I love the build up of color using this technique. I hope you give it a try. Thanks for stopping by.
