My card is an example of using watercolor pencils in four different techniques as follows:
1. Swipe the waterbrush over the pencil point to pick up color and paint the gnome images that were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink on Canson watercolor paper. Go back to swiping the pencil point as needed to get the desired color.
2. Use the pencil directly on the image and blend with the waterbrush for highlighting or depth.
3. For the sky, I used regular cardstock (Hammermill Color, Copy, Cover), and swiped color onto the waterbrush. Working quickly, apply the color randomly and lightly. Keep adding color as needed.
4. Splatter the sky by flicking the waterbrush over the pencil point that is aimed at the sky.
The stamp set (Photoplay Tulla & Norbert by Becky Moore) has a matching 12x12 paper kit (flower box stickers and Lucky sentiment). NOTE: To eliminate the adhesive backing, just rub with powder and the adhesive disappears! I do this trick in order to add foam mounting tape.
The St. Patricks Day embellishment (Amuse Studio) was stamped in Altenew Fresh Leaf ink. I diecut three additional circles and glued them all together to create thickness.
To create the rainbow edge, do Step 1 above on watercolor paper and cut a 1" strip and affix to the bottom of the card. Gold narrow washi tape (my stash) divides the rainbow edge from the flower boxes.
