WATERCOLOURING ON CARDS (WARNING!! ADDICTIVE!!)

I have been experimenting using watercolour with stamping on lots of cards lately.
I have given away many before taking photos. This means I will just have to make some more so I can share them with you soon. 
Any way here are some I remembered to photograph.


FYI:   Kristina Werner has really great videos on YouTube to inspire everyone to watercolour.


Above are the same Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Botanical Sketch Stamp heat embossed in both black & white, then watercoloured to give completely different looks.


My newest stamp purchases are from Concord & 9th.  I am absolutely loving them & will post more photos soon, as they are so cool to use. You can combine the images in lots of different ways.  
Well worth checking out their Blog, Instagram & videos on YouTube.  
They are easily found so I have not provided a link.


 Dina Wakeley Bird Stamps used with Wendy Vecchi 'Art Comforts' Stamp set for the meadow flowers, white heat embossed & water coloured beautifully.
Same stamp set masked with Tim Holtz Sentiment & Wendy Vecchi embossing Paste applied through Tim Holtz Lace Stencil. Stamped in Jet Black Archival.

Older Hero Arts Butterfly Stamp repeatedly stamped & masked before watercolouring.
This was inspired by a photo I saved online. Sorry that I can't remember who from.
The Kite card is my idea.


As is this card using Tim Holtz Flower Garden Stamps.

Hope you enjoyed these cards and feel inspired to try Water colouring.
They are much cleaner & simpler cards, but lots of fun to make.
There are lots of video tutorials online on this subject.
My only advice is to always use watercolour paper for best results.

Bye for now,  Deb Adams
