How to colour with Blends and Watercolour pencils

In Stampin' Up! by Emma GoddardLeave a Comment

The dies from the Everyday Details Bundle grabbed my attention as soon as I saw the Mini Catalogue, but couldn’t resist the 10% saving from the bundle and all the images are lovely!

This card design started out from the nest image and colouring the eggs with some bright spring colours. The nest image has been cut out with paper snips and layered onto the die cut circle with some dimensionals.

The stripes on both cards are cut to 1cm or 3/8″ in depth by the width of the panel.

I often use a front layer to my cards, which allows me to work on this panel and add it to the card once complete. The front panel measures 14.5cm x 10.2cm when working with A4 cardstock or if you are working with Letter cardstock then my suggested measurement is 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.

The colouring on the teacups is where you can really see how the watercolour pencils creates extra shading to your Blended images.

On the left have added a base colour of Pool Party Blends and then added shading with the Coastal Cabana Pencil over the top. The middle cup is coloured with a base of Bubble Bath Blends with Flirty Flamingo sharing over the top. The final cup on the end is coloured with two sets of blends (Balmy Blue & Orchid Oasis) because there is no watercolour pencil in Orchid Oasis. Whilst there are darker blue watercolour pencils, I wanted to stick with the colour combination from the first card.
