Altenew-Floral Watercolor Card-May Park

Hi, crafty friends! Today I have a floral watercolor card to share. To create my own floral arrangement, I mixed the images from several stamp sets from AltenewGarden TreasureRemember ThisBeautiful Day.

After stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on the A2 size Arches cold press watercolor paper, I colored them with Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36 watercolor set using two different watercolor techniques.

For my yellow flower, I used a quick and easy watercolor technique.

For the orange flower, I spent more time on watercoloring and added multiple layers to give extra dimension and depth to my flower.

Can you tell the difference between the pink and orange flower? The pink flower has some harsh lines on the petals as I applied the pigment after the previous layer was dry.

The orange flower has a smooth and gradient look of the colors as I added the pigment while the previous layer was wet. I love both results. What do you think?

As usual, I dressed up my envelope a bit by stamping the sentiment and image on the flap from the Crafty Friends stamp set.

Video

I made a video tutorial to show you how to make my watercolor card from start to finish. You can watch it here or in HD on YouTube.

I’m also sharing the behind-the-scenes video at the end you don’t want to miss! 🙂

That’s all for today. Hope you enjoyed my watercolor card. Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!
