Another beautiful Sunday here in Southeast Texas-hot, humid, and bringing you another lovely water colored card!
Hope you like it because you can do this too!
Water coloring does not have to be intimidating. You just have to practice a bit.
You will get better with each try!
Now, I’m not the best watercolorist out there, but I generally love what I achieve, and I think that’s EVERYTHING!
Water Coloring 101
If you are not familiar with water coloring or are afraid to try, this is for you!
My number one tip for water coloring is: use quality supplies!
Since I do not “free style” watercolor, it is essential that I have good quality images on top of good quality watercolor paper. There are some really expensive brands out there on the market, and if I were a professional artist maybe these are what I would purchase.
However, for hobbyists and crafters I think Altenew has some of the best quality and reasonable price points for all your water coloring needs. Like these items below.
The whole point is just to create. I’m okay with using “pre-stamped” images and applying my choice of colors and sentiments that I like. I’m not going to re-invent the wheel! I’m just having some fun!
As you can see, I only used a few colors, and my card looks great.
I’m a ‘stay in the lines” kind of person so using the Watercolor Coloring Book is great for me and gives me success in my creativity!
I also colored the small piece of vellum framing my sentiment for this card with the same watercolors!
There is a ton of information on the Altenew website with tutorials and products that can take from a beginner to advanced water colorist in no time at all! Thank you so much for stopping by today and sharing a bit of your time with me!
