Hello. It’s Gaylynn here with another installment of my Watercolor Wednesday series.
Today, I am sharing flower watercolor blending and a cute card topper idea.
For this card, I used watercolor markers with stamping as one way to show flower watercolor blending. I also share a way to add paper layers to make a card topper.
Sentiment: With sympathy.
Here are tips for this flower watercolor blending technique and topper idea. To begin, I used watercolor paper for the flower and vellum for the sentiment. All paper was trimmed to fit the card base. Next, watercolor was added using Zig markers, but any watercolor would work for this technique. I first dabbed watercolor by color section and then blended that section out with a wet brush. Then, I repeated that for the second golden watercolor sections, blending into the first color. Finally, to finish, I layered a card topper using die-cut patterned paper, vellum and a sentiment.
