Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! I have a couple of new products to show you from Arteza. They have some new products just for us card crafters–Blank Watercolor Cards and Watercolor Postcards. I stamped a couple of large floral images on these blank cards and pulled out some Arteza watercolor mediums. The paper of these cards is 100% cotton, and I loved painting on them!
I also have a coupon code for you from Arteza. It’s good for 10% off your purchase: JackiesCraftTable7 It’s valid from September 12th until October 17th.
Postcard: Thankful Flowers
I stamped out my floral images and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This makes watercoloring very fast and easy. You don’t have to wait for your paint to dry before beginning on another section. The embossed lines are like little wells around each stamped section and contains the paint. To paint this, I pulled out my set of Arteza 36 Watercolor Half Pans. I love watercolors, and this set from Arteza really has some beautiful colors in it.
I usually add some type of sequin to my cards, but since this is a postcard, I spattered it with little flicks of paint.
Card: Floral Surprise
Arteza’s Blank watercolor cards are a little bit bigger than the A2 sized cards I usually create. I could have cut this card down, but I wanted to try out this size. It was a great size for the large floral image I used. This time I didn’t heat emboss my image.
I colored in my card with Arteza’s Watercolor Pencils. I love watercolor pencils. You can use them as colored pencils or you can add water to smooth and brighten up your colors.
Arteza Watercolor Pencils I used on this card:
Pink Flowers: Coral, Apricot & Peony
Small flowers: Peony
Yellow Flowers: Yellow Sapphire & Sunflower
Purple Flower: Lilac
Leaves: Matcha & Moss
Dog: Burnt Ochre & Sienna Brown, Orange & Noir
Cat: Space Gray & Peony; Orange & Noir
Here is my process video! You can watch it here or over on my YouTube Channel in HD.
Have a wonderful day, my crafty friends!! Thanks for stopping by!
