Hello! Nicole here and today I am sharing a very simple and clean watercolor card. You know I am a big fan of watercoloring and if you are new to using watercolor markers, today’s video is a perfect one. I am going to show you how to create a soft yet colorful image by just coloring in partial area of an image. Don’t forget to check out the video below!

One of the things I love about this technique is that it’s very easy to do. And it takes very little time so you can even create multiple cards to send or give them as a gift set. There are lots of markers that you can use for watercoloring, but I especially love ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers. They are rich in pigment so you only need a little bit to spread colors on images. If you want to learn more about these markers, check out my previous video. And I promise I will share different techniques using these markers soon!

Lilacs are my favorite flowers of all, next to peonies. I love how they smell and thought this Spring Lilacs stamp set would be perfect one for a summer birthday card. (since Lilacs usually bloom in summer!) You can see above that I used different colors on lilac petals to create some depth. I left the branch part of the image blank so that the interest can stay on the flowers. (I said I colored them in brown in the video but I didn’t!)

I used a sentiment from Sweet Peas stamp set and added a bit of Wink of Stella right on top of it. Small touches always go a long way, adding nice interest to the card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! I will be back soon to share more projects.

Hugs,

Nicole
