Technique Tuesday #8

Happy May, friends!
It's time for Technique Tuesday!
I share a technique (or two) every Tuesday with Technique Tuesday products.
 
You can find Technique Tuesday products over Technique Tuesday shop here
or here over Scrapbook.com , here over Simon Says Stamp

Today's card is my attempt of NEARLY no-line water-coloring.
for you

You can use this ink from Simon Says Stamp. This time I tried it with Altenew's Perfect Peach.

for you

 These floral images are pretty large in size and are perfect for coloring.

Ding---> to achieve rich hues and shades from the watercoloring, be sure to let it dry in each layer of coloring. I used thin watercolor Canson paper (90Lb), you can substitute it with Mix Media Paper.  
for you

Since I spent quite a bit of time to color the images, I took a short cut by using Washi tape for the background. Surprisingly, they compliment each other quite nicely!
for you-003

The washi tape doesn't look like a washi tape at all. If you didn't say it is a washi tape, I thought you've painted this watercolor wash for your background.-Maria Giselle B.

Beautiful flowers!

Linda BL said...

The Flowers for Her is a lovely stamp set. I loved your bright colors for the flowers against the peach gold of the washi tape. I too, would have thought that it was a watercolor wash.

Very pretty. I like your coloring. I was surprised to find out that was a washi tape background.

Your colors are soft and lovely. This stamp set is unique. Thanks for the water color hint, lately I've been using watercolor and not getting the vibrant color I want. I will allow more drying from now on.
