It’s Gaylynn here with another installment of my Watercolor Wednesday series. Here is a way to use watercolor pencils along with stamping and partial fussy cutting.
For this card, I stamped the florals and the sentiment in waterproof Ranger archival ink onto watercolor paper. I also used the Mini Misti stamping tool. Watercolor was added in layers using Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils. To add dimension, I used a partial fussy cutting step by only cutting the bottom part of the flower panel.
Happy birthday. May all your wishes come true.

I made a quick video tutorial for this. It includes instructions along the way throughout the video. However, the written process follows.
Watercolor Pencils Flower Card and Partial Fussy Cutting
By Gaylynn Martling for Unity’s Watercolor Wednesday
(See also the video tutorial for this project.)
I began by stamping with archival ink and the Mini Misti stamping tool onto watercolor paper.
Watercolor pencil sketches were placed where I wanted color. Then a wet brush was used to pull out the color and blend.
Between colors, I heat set and repeated with another color. For these flowers, I used two colors per section.
I first used a flat stiff brush then detailed with a narrow brush. Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils were also used.
The leaves were done with the same process as the flowers. Repeat color layers if you want to.
To add dimension, I fussy cut the bottom half of the flower panel.
Finally, everything was layered to finish.
