Hello, thank you for taking the time to hop over to my blog.
Something I’m not very good at is no line watercolouring. Oh, I try, I really try, but it never looks how I imagine it will.
I think it’s a combination of my lack of free hand artistry and my love of crisp bold images.
But I persist and this time around I documented my stages below in photos, so please feel free to leave a comment with tips and opinions. I also have called this “somewhat no line colouring” as the line, stamped with Antique Linen distress ink, is clearly still visible. One step at a time!
I used Tim Holtz watercolour paper and distress ink to stamp with. I chose the Lotus stamp set from Waffle Flower Stamps as its just so darling and has large areas to colour in.
At this stage (above) I felt the lotus leaves were to green and after this was confirmed by my husband, I added clean water to the area, allowed it to sit for a minute and blotted it with a paper towel. This did the trick.
Still needing contrast within the leaves I went with yellow, not factually correct, but it works for me!
Hope you like the card and happy crafting to you!
