Watercolor Kindness

I recently, purchased the Color Splash pencils.  When they arrived, I could hardly wait to break into them, and start watercoloring.  The image used on this card was the first thing I worked on with these new pencils, and I adore how it turned out.  

The soft tones of the watercolored image shine in this handmade card, thanks to the soft, kraft hued, background.  Created using Fun Stampers Journey Color Splash pencils, and the Your Kindness stamp (available as an exclusive bonus - a Bloom Benefit - for orders of $75 or more)

To create the card front, I embossed the Oatmeal Cookie Card Stock with the Mystic Impressions Embossing Folder, and then rubbed the raised portions with the Whip Cream PanPastel.  Then I layered up a piece of vellum, and some Organza Ribbon.  I matted the watercolor panel with some of the corrugated stock, and attached that to my card front with foam squares.  A few scattered pearls, and a Whip Cream card base finished the card off.

There's a tip today as well.  Despite being "pencils", don't color your image with the actual pencil.  Use a blending brush to pick up some color from the tip of the pencil, and take it to the paper.  You'll get a softer, and more even blend this way.  And let your layers dry before adding more color, if you are trying to shade.  Your shading will show up better.

Thanks for stopping by!
