Watercoloring techniques can be super easy or a bit more difficult but honestly, one of the challenges is just having a certain mindset while you’re doing it.
Coloring with watercolor is the easiest of the water coloring techniques to me. It still can be a bit intimidating to many people, and I think part of the reason is that it turns out different every time you do it. For me, the letting go of control, and just seeing what you get, is a lot of the fun. That’s the mindset that is the most helpful for me. Plus, I love watching the ink move in the water as I color!
I’ve used coloring with watercolor, for my rose and surrounding leaves, plus I’ve done some sponging.
This was one of my July club projects and is one of the July/August Free Card Kit projects too!
In case you’re interested, there are details about my Free Card Kit program later in this post.
So, today’s card is made with the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set.
This stamp set can be purchased as a stand-alone set or as part of a bundle that includes coordinating dies. You save 10% when you buy the bundle!
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing this project. If you like the look, check out my video tutorial to see me coloring with watercolor!
