Hi! I haven't done no-line watercoloring in a while so I thought this week's hummingbird challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such would be a perfect time to try it again. I love the result and hope you do too!
I first used watercolor markers to stamp the images from Inkadinkado and ODBD Hummingbird. This was also the perfect time to use my Twinkling H2O's Thankful set - because hummingbirds are just gorgeously shimmery in real life. After everything was dried, I splattered some of the blue and green watercolors to the image. I then trimmed down the image using the large stitched die from MFT Blueprint 13 and adhered it to a black card base using Scor-tape. I like to use stronger adhesive like Scor-tape when I do watercolor since the paper is usually a bit warped and this ensures it doesn't pop off in some places. I also run it through the big shot with just the two acrylic plates to flatten it well.
I added the verse from ODBD Faith stamp set using black detail embossing powder and small Joy! foam pads to pop it up with a couple of black fish tail banners. The orange center of the flower was darker than I wanted so I used the ice white Viva Decor Pearl Pen in an attempt to lighten it but I ended up loving the shine and texture to it.
Are you ready to try some of the techniques I used today? I hope you can play along in this week's challenge!
Don't forget that you can use the coupon code DIANAN-10 to the Classy Cards 'n Such on-line store for many of the items I used today.
