The Flourishes Focus today on the Newletter is a tutorial by the fabulous Christine Okken. Not only did she give you a step by step tutorial on how to get great watercolor effects, she challenged the rest of us to pick up our waterbrushes and give it a try!
So, here's a peek at my card with the new Signs Of Spring set!
I took all the colors of marker that I wanted to use for my daffodils and I scribbled them on a plastic palette. This is actually an old spacer place for my Wizard that I am now "repurposing!" I have three shades of yellow, three shades of green and two shades of brown. Christine's concept of starting light and then adding darker shades for shadows is exactly the same here, I am just going to use a blender pen to pick up my color from my palette. I start by stamping my daffodils on my tag with Palette Burnt Umber ink. It's a permanent ink that really works beautifully for not just watercolor but Copic markers too!
I started by picking up the medium brown marker from my palette to create some shadows around my image....
Here's a final peek!
