I am so glad you could join our Around The World On Wednesday May Blog this month as we share our projects created with our favorite coloring tools. This month we also have Emma Goddard, as our special guest, hopping along with us. I hope that our projects inspire you to try new coloring tools and techniques when creating your own projects.
I love coloring, so it was difficult to choose a favorite coloring tool to share for today's project. In the end, I decided to choose Stampin' Up!'s amazing Watercolor Pencils and I paired it with a Blender Pen to create a soft watercolor look but still have the vibrant colors that love. I used colors from both the original Watercolor Pencils pack (item #141709) and the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 pack for my color palette. The colors I chose included Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, Rich Razzleberry, Garden Green, Granny Apple Green and a touch of Calypso Coral.
To create this card design, I chose Granny Apple Green cardstock for my card base and added a layer of Thick Whisper White cardstock that I heat embossed the image from the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp (item #151612) with Gold Embossing Powder. I am a big fan of heat embossing and I thought that the Gold embossing just stepped the design up to the next level and helped make the colors pop.
I colored the different images using the various watercolor pencil colors and then used the Blender Pen (item #102845 set of 3 pens) to blend and soften the colors and remove any harsh pencil lines. I attached the colored Whisper White panel to the card base with Snail Adhesive. To create the sentiment, I heat embossed the image from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set (item #151331) with Gold Embossing Powder onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and die cut the sentiment using one of the Ornate Frames Dies (item #150664). I attached the sentiment to the card front with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and added two Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. The bright colors of this card design remind me of a Spring garden and I love the cheerful feel of this design.Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my project has inspired you to try using Watercolor Pencils to add color to your own projects. There are so many wonderful possibilities to explore.
