Humming Along Watercolour – Soon to be Gone! I love watercolour techniques, although I don’t seem to do them often enough. Time to remedy that, at least for today.
Today’s project video is a little different, in that I only show you how to make one element and the final card. But, I am planning a video to show you how I got the other elements ready, so I will be filling that gap shortly. My reason for not covering it today is simply that I have developed a persistent headache, so did not want to do too much. That said, as today is filming day, I will end up doing lots!
The Humming Along Stamp Set and Humming Bird dies are perfect for Watercolour, so I thought I would use them before they fly away. By which I mean they are NOT carrying over to the new Annual Catalogue, so if you love them, as I do, grab yours before they are gone for good!
I started my project by deciding that I wanted the background to be sunset colours and that the images should ‘pop’ from that. For my sunset I grabbed Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral and Mango Melody. These colours are perfect for the tropical sunset look I was after. I added Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point and Granny Apple Green to the palette for the images. To give some added richness, I heat embossed the images with Copper Embossing Powder. This gives the perfect foil to the popping colours of the palette.
For the sentiment I, again, used Copper Embossing Powder, then added a wash of Bermuda Bay so that the sentiment element blended with the other pieces. Even though I have used Bermuda Bay card for the mat, using the ‘flat’ colour for the sentiment just didn’t look right. Adding Copper Foil behind the sentiment was the finishing touch.
I love the final look of this bright and happy summer card, and hope you do.
