Hello, goo to see you have popped over to the blog today! So today I am showing you ‘watercolouring’ with surface sprays. Now I have put quotation marks around watercolour as the sprays aren’t watercolours but you can use them in a similar way to get a bold bright watercolour look. Simply add a little spray to a palette well and add a little water. Then use any brush to paint but bare in mind, when they dry they are permanent. So to add shading, start off light and layer to add depth and dimension.
*For supplies featured in this post, please refer to the links at the end of the post.
'Watercolouring' with surface sprays Card Process Overview
Stamp your chosen images onto masking paper and cut out these images. Next start stamping your design onto smooth watercolour card in Raven detail Ink, using the masks to create depth and dimension. Once your design I stamped, heat set it to ensure the ink doesn’t run when your paint. Remember Raven detail ink is waterproof when heat set.
Add small drops of surface sprays to the wells of a paint palette, and add water to each colour. Using a paintbrush, paint your design. Remember these sprays are permanent when dry, and as they aren’t watercolours, it is better to start off lightly and increase the colour with layers.
Once dry, add an outline in light grey to add dimension. Die cut and layer a sentiment, mount this onto the card with a secondary embossed sentiment. You could add paint splatter for added interest. Lastly, foam mount an additional cut out stamp and add glossy accents for added interest.
