Heartland Watercolor for Technique Tuesday

Coloring Fun with Heartland by Stampin' Up!® | Nature's INKspirations by Angie McKenzie

So did you see yesterday's blog post?!?  If not, you can read it here.  Last week was filled with coloring time for me on a rainy summer afternoon.  Nothing like having an excuse to color, right?  Using the same image and cardstock, different techniques were tried to achieve similar effects.  Yesterday's card featured coloring with the Blends markers.  And today's card features watercolor pencils!

The image was stamped on Shimmery White cardstock with Stazon Jet Black ink.  The coloring was done with Night of Navy, Early Expresso, Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie watercolor pencils.  The skin tone was not colored so that the recipient could imagine the tones themselves...  The bottom of the foot had to be colored (I adore little feet!) as it would be muddy from the damp ground that was underfoot.  The colors were lightly washed with an Aqua Painter for the watercolor effect which also softened the pencil strokes.  

COLORING TIP:  Due to the tip of my Aqua Painter splaying as I was coloring the overall straps, a tad bit of blue ran onto the skin.  Once dry, the Blender pen helped with removing the color.

The sentiment from To A Wild Rose was stamped in Blueberry Bushel.  The Shimmery White layer was adhered to a width shortened piece of Night of Navy cardstock to assist with creating a floating layer above the Corrugated embossed piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  The floating layer was adhered to the Blueberry Bushel cardbase with Adhesive Strips which had been colored along the sides with the Light Night of Night Blends.

The inside sentiment was the perfect wording for this special friend of mine.  It's been a while since I've seen her and I know she'll love knowing how much I appreciate our friendship.

I hope that this card has inspired you to color with watercolor pencils.  Be sure to pop by again later this week to see the third coloring technique!

Have a blessed day!
