Watercolour by Request – Three Ways

My class on the weekend had a watercolour theme by request.  I love designing classes that suit the stampers in attendance – it gives the project design a little something extra.

Watercolouring is lots of fun and has many different styles. Within the Stampin’ Up! range, you can use Watercolor Paper, Shimmery White cardstock & Whisper White cardstock as your base.  Then your tools of choice are blender pens or aqua painters.  And finally a choice of ink – Staz On, Archival Black/Grey, Craft White (for bokeh). Each combination gives its own result.  Changing one feature can change the project entirely.

Here’s what we made…

As a technique, colouring can take a little bit of time to develop your skills.  Some people are drawn towards one method of watercolouring more than others – which is what art & expression is all about.  I always forget to take pictures of what the ladies made during the class, but their end products were so creative and it was a pleasure to watch their cards evolve as they added colour & played with their own style.

Thanks for the inspiration ladies, it’s always so delightful to spend time crafting with you.  Kelly x
