When I bought this pretty floral heart stamp, I knew I’d watercolor it – with such a BIG stamp, it’s easy to do some watercoloring, and in the video I’ll show you how to mix colors – and to do some wet-in-wet painting!

TECHNIQUE TIPS

To reserve white, be conscious of where you want the white; paint with a light color up to it, so you’ll have soft transitions, only dropping darker color into the flower centers.

Mix different greens out of blues and yellows in your palette – paint osme leaves with one kind of green, then miix up a different one to paint between them, and let them all blend together softly. In a final pass after it’s dry, pick a few leaves to “push” to the back by painting them dark green.

FINISHING TIPS

Not every card front needs to be full size – I cut this one about half an inch short, and the layer on the inside shows through; originally it was white peeking out but that distracted from the white flowers. So I painted a strip of scrap watercolor paper and added it to the liner inside!
