Tutorial Tuesday - Watercolour Card by Debs

Hi everyone, Debs here with a pretty little card. 

First I stamped the corners using stamps from Flower Power and then added my feature from Cone Flowers

I restamped the feature onto tissue paper and cut it out. I placed this over the original stamping to mask it and added the leaves from Crazy Flowers #2.

When you remove the mask you have your leaves in the background. I added some line work where it was missing and heat set it all.

I used watercolours in the background, by gently wetting the page and adding the colours in layers to build up the depth.
I then dried it before working on the flowers in the same way. 

Lastly I added the sentiment from Bling Bling.

Here are some close-ups:

The stamps I used are shown below

Take care

  1. Lovely card, Debs! Very nice effect with the masking, to get the leaves behind the cone flowers! I also think it's a very good combo of stamps from different sets - I would never have thought of using those leaves with the flowers, but they look really good together!! Thank you so much for sharing your tutorial! ♥ ♥ ♥

  2. This is beautiful Debs and I loved seeing how it all came together xx

  3. Oh I love how you have added the leaves with masking - it looks fantastic!
