Watercoloured Spring Wreath

Today’s card features the ‘Because’ stamp set and I thought the stamp would be perfect for some no-line water colouring. As the weather out there is lovely, I thought it would be perfect for a watercoloured spring wreath card. And this sentiment just finishes it off!

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY DESIGN-TEAM WORK FOR SUNSHINE & BEE DESIGNS - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

watercoloured spring wreath

Watercolour spring wreath painting:

To start off, stamp the wreath onto watercolour card stock with Gina K Designs Whisper Amalgam ink using a stamping platform. Alternatively, use any other ink you prefer for your no-line watercolouring, for example, antique linen distress ink. 

Next, using a small round brush and the 36 pan Altenew Watercolour pan set, colour the images in. It is best to start off lightly and build the colour up. To add shading, allow the first layer to dry before going in with a darker colour. 

The colours for the tulips were: Puffy Heart and Cosmic Berry; the flowers: Mountain Mist and Lagoon; the leaves: Evergreen, Forest Glades and Bamboo.

Adding depth

Also, to ensure the colours do not bleed, do not paint to objects one after another if they are right next to each other. Allow the object to dry before you colour the object in that is next to it. Make sure you go in with some darker colours to add depth and interest. 

Assembling the card

Once dry, trim the card down to 5.25″ X 4″ and mount onto a card base out of Gina K Innocent Pink cardstock. Next, using Versafine Oynx Black Pigment Ink, stamp the sentiment ‘because I love you’ from the stamp set in the middle of the wreath. 

Lastly, finish the card off by adding a few Tonic Studios Nuvo Jewel drops in matching colours.
