This week's MIM at PapertreyInk, has Melissa Phillips
showing us how to make watercolor card sets.
Melissa used PTI's Bold Blossoms watercolor sheets, which I have,
but I wondered how her technique would work on
other PTI sets, Super Succulents, for instance,
which is printed on linen paper.
Started out with this preprinted sheet with the 3 potted plants,
sponge inked and watercolored Lemon Tart and Harvest Gold.
Stamped and spritzed the front, and added my sentiment.
The dp come with several patterns, easy to add a co-ordinated strip of
pattern to the front.
This one was sponged with Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold & Summer Sunrise.
Stamped the hanging succulents, and spritzed with orange.
Melissa added sequins to her lovely cards, so I also added some to mine.
3rd card in the set with selected inking and watercoloring.
These came together quickly and easily, but I learned the hard way not
to go heavy on the water with the linen paper.
Liked this technique so well, did another, and added a die cut.
