Hello, it’s Gaylynn. Today, I am sharing a tropical beach scene card using water soluble oil pastels for watercolor.
For this one-layer Summer card, I used watercolor, stenciling and ink blending. It was fun building added accents to this already lovely background stamp.
Sentiment: Oh, hello.
I made a quick video tutorial HERE showing the process for this project.
In short, here are helpful tips for making this tropical card using water soluble oil pastels for watercolor. To begin, stamp the large background scene with waterproof ink onto watercolor paper. Next, color in the stamped beach scene with watercolors. I used oil pastels. Then, heat set. Also, mask the beach sand, the umbrella and the clouds, leaving the sky for stenciling. Next, stencil a sunburst at the horizon. Then, remove the stencil and masking. Also, touch up where needed using a marker or pencil. Finally, adhere it to the card base, to finish.
Here is a closer look.
Also, Prima oil pastels, stencil, distress oxide ink, blending brush and watercolor paper.
