No-line watercoloured sweet peas

For my post today, I’m using the Sweet Pea stamp set – you can download the digital stamp over at The Little Paper Tree from Sunshine & Bee Designs. This lovely stamp set has a selection of delicate sweet peas. Of course, they can come in such beautiful colours so I went for a lovely purple sweet pe. To go with these no-line watercolour sweet peas, I created a yellow background to compliment the flowers and let them pop off the card!

Creating the no-line watercoloured sweet peas

Download the Sweet Pea digital stamp set – this comes in a black outline or a grey no-line outline which is perfect for water colouring. Print this out on thin watercolour card using a laser printer as this will prevent any ink from bleeding. 

Next start off by adding clear water to one petal before starting to add some purple colour to the bottom of the petal, blending this out up the petal. After, move onto another petal that is not adjacent to prevent the paint from bleeding. Repeat the process on this petal whilst you allow the other petal to try. Keep repeating this until all petals have had once coat of colour. 

Now go back to the first petal and start darkening up the colour of the base of the petal, blending this out and also adding a darker colour to the shadow areas. Use the same principle for colouring the petals into colour in the stem and leaves. Once dry, fussy cut the sweet peas out. 

Tying the card together!

For the background, use a blending tool to add Limoncello Catherine Pooler Ink to the middle of a white card base made out of Neehah Solar White Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. Also add a touch of tiara to the middle just to darken the centre slightly. Die-cut the Circle Stripe Catherine Pooler die from white cardstock and foam mount over the ink blending. 

Next adhere the sweet peas to the front, tucking the stems within the die. Lastly, add a heat embossed sentiment and then finish the card off with a few yellow sequins.
