Happy Monday! I’ve created a watercolor card using a stamp set from the SSS Masterpiece Box! This stamp set is called “Oh Happy Day.”
I stamped it out using my Mini Misti. This helped me stamp it several times, 6 times to be exact, until I got it dark enough. The heavily textured paper soaked up the ink.
I had to include a picture of this darling mug one of my nieces sent to me. I love it! This will be a permanent fixture on my craft table. I’m going to use it as my water container every time I paint. Thank you, Emmy!
One of my favorite designers, Yoonsun Hur, created this stamp set, and I simply love it. Yoonsun creates a lot of her cards with watercolors, so I thought I’d pull out my little set of watercolors. Check out her blog; she’s fabulous: RejoicingCrafts.com
I’m using a tin box of Prima watercolors, called Tropicals. I’m loving these paints–not only are the colors beautiful and bright, but the box is very portable, so I can take it on the go.
I wet down each flower and then dropped in the color. It’s fun watching the colors feather out. I allowed my panel to dry, and then I went back in with a less watered down pigment to add a darker color to the petals, which added more dimension to the flowers.
You can watch the card video here or on my YouTube channel.
Thanks for visiting!
