Hello everyone! Today I am going to be sharing some easy, no-line watercolor inspiration with you. I had shared this tutorial over on the Simon Says Stamp blog a couple weeks ago for Kathy Racoosin’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge, and wanted to feature it here too just in case you missed it!
I’ll be using some of Simon’s exclusive stamp sets, including the ever popular, Even More Spring Flowers stamp set!
Here’s a look at the card I have colored and created for the blog hop! While this card appears extremely detailed, and even perhaps a bit challenging, I’m here to tell you that it is really quite easy! If you watch the video at the top of this post, I’ll walk you through the steps and show you that YOU can do this too.
All of the flowers in my scene are from Simon’s exclusive, More Spring Flowers and Even More Spring Flowers stamp sets. I stamped each one with colored inks that coordinate with the watercolor shades I planned on using. Speaking of watercolors, I used Prima’s watercolor confections. However, you can use whatever watercolors you would like for this technique.
I’ve needed thank you cards lately, so I’m adding more to my stash by using Simon’s exclusive, Big Thanks word die, which is paired with a supporting sentiment from My Favorite Things’ Grateful for You stamp set. I cut the thanks word from Tonic Studios gold mirror cardstock.
Please be sure to watch the video to see how creating a card like this can actually be rather simple! I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial!
