In preparation for Online Card Classes’ Watercolor for Card Makers I’ve enjoyed playing with my watercolour supplies. Today I pulled out some Tim Holtz watercolour card which I like due to how white the paper is and the fact you have a choice of textured or smoother side. I diluted Distress Inks on an acrylic block before swiping some simple watercolour lines across the page. The lines make a nice subtle background for this beautiful gold heat embossed flower from the Summer Garden set by Simon Says Stamp. Isn’t that sentiment font gorgeous! There’s been lots of chat about that font and how lovely it is :D The ‘hello’ is from a slightly longer sentiment which I partially inked up for this little tag and again heat embossed. A little gold splatter and some bling finished it all off.
Here’s an angled view so you can really see that gold shine and those subtle stripes :D The inks I used were a mix of Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap, both diluted well and mixed together to give various depth of colour.
The watercolor class starts on 05 May but there is already some pre class videos to view, so if you haven’t signed up yet I highly recommend it.
