Easy Faux Watercolor Flower

Happy Monday Everyone ~ today’s card is an Easy Faux Watercolor Flower creation.

Well today is moving day.  I have a feeling I will be moving things in around painters and the cleaning ladies.  There is nothing I can do as I have to move in.  There are still a lot of items on the punch list that are not completed also.  It will be interesting to see what happens.  I will be taking the keys out of the area they have been stored for contractors to come and go.  I will also be locking the garage door while I am there as I do not want to be in the shower and have a contractor come in.  I am hoping they will begin coordinating their arrival so I know when they are coming.  Will let you know.

Today I am sharing a faux watercoloring technique.  This is an easy way to get a watercolor look quick and easy.  Using your Stamparatus, stamp the flower onto watercolor paper using Fresh Fig ink.  Then take you aqua painter and add water to the image moving the ink around to color the image.  Let the image dry completely ~ you can dry the image with a heat tool if you want to speed up the process.  Put the image back into the Stamparatus and restamp the image using the Fresh Fig ink.  This makes your image lines crisp.  Use the coordinating framelits to cut out the flower.  Stamp your leaves onto Tranquil Tide card stock using Tranquil Tide ink.  Use the framelits to cut them out.  Take a piece of the Share What You Love designer series paper and add some Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon.  Layer it onto your Rich Razzleberry card base.  Take another piece of the ribbon and tie a knot around the ribbon.  Add your leaves to your flower using  glue dots.  Use dimensionals to attach your flower to the card base.  Here is the completed Easy Faux Watercolor Flower creation.

Watercoloring can be a great technique to use on your card. If you are now sure where to begin, check out how I created my Easy Faux Watercolor Flower.
