Hello Crafty friends! It is Natasha here and I am excited to be back up on the Lindy’s blog today! Today I am sharing ways to use your Magicals for watercoloring stamped/foiled images! I had a lot of fun creating today’s card! So let’s get started!
I started with a floral image for my card today. I foiled the image onto watercolor card stock. I then chose the Nantucket Pearls Magicals set to watercolor my image. I specifically chose 3 colors for the image: Salt Water Taffy, Cape Cod Coral, and Sea Grass Green. When watercoloring I color in layers, I did the same with the Magicals. I placed a small amount of each color onto my paint palette and prepped each color with a little water. I then started to watercolor my floral image. I completed 1 layer of color at a time and allowed the layer to dry before adding a 2nd layer of color.
For each floral and leaf image, I did several layers of color using only the 3 colors I shared above. You can achieve such beautiful results with these colors and shading too! Once the image was watercolored, I die cut the image and then set it aside to work on the card background. For my background, I used a pre-made gelli print I had in my stash. I then ran the background through my die-cutting machine with an embossing folder. Next, I distressed the edges and applied ink to the edges, plus various sections of the panel to add more distressing.
To complete my card I layered the gelli print panel on top of a kraft panel and adhered it to an A2 card base. I added a bit of twine for added texture and then foam mounted my floral image and added a sentiment to complete my card! I had a lot of fun creating today’s card and I can’t wait to watercolor again with Lindy’s Magicals!!!
Thank you for stopping by today!
