I have a video today sharing how you can watercolor using the Avery Elle Liquid Watercolors! If you haven’t been following the CLASSroom, the designers have been showcasing fun techniques on how to use these liquid watercolors so be sure to check it out by clicking HERE! All supplies used are linked at the end of this post. You are almost to the end of the hop! Next up is the final stop, Sandy Allnock. The full hop list is linked towards the end of this post.
Let’s take a look at my video first. EXCUSE THE SHAKING in some segments. I have a new set up and was figuring out placement. You can watch the video over on my youtube channel by clicking HERE! If you aren’t a subscriber, be sure to click HERE to subscribe!
As shown in the video, you can simply drop your watercolor into your image and allow the water to do its magic. And that second leaf down at the bottom? Oye, that was my attempt at free handing a leaf. I am trying desperately to learn how to sketch. If I can’t draw a leaf, there is NO hope for me, lol….
I love to heat emboss when watercoloring because it makes the images pop off the page and the embossed areas act as a barrier to help contain the watercolor. The Mondo Peony stamp set has always been a favorite of mine. It’s a staple in my craft room. I also showed in the video how you can cover up a mistake when your watercolor bleeds into another color. I do love that border strip at the bottom. It’s this fun die cut from Avery Elle.
So aside from my pitiful hand drawn leaf, I am loving this card. Remember, this is a blog hop! So loads of inspiration to see and prizes to be won.
