Hello there everyone and happy Saturday! I’m so thrilled and honoured to be part of Taheerah’s Advent Calendar! Go check out her blog for all the info and prize giveaways.
So today I have a card to share using a no line watercolour technique and I even have a video to go with it..yay!
I started by drawing a circle in faint pencil to act as a guide for the wreath. I then used the small branch image fro Layer Laurel and used 2nd generation Evergreen Bough Distress Ink to ink around the pencil line. When this was done I then went over the image using Pine Needles and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink as watercolour- I love adding blue/cool tones to leaves as it adds so much interest.
I then used one of the smaller leaf clusters from the same set around the wreath- again using 2nd generation Evergreen Bough ink. I did the same technique again to colour these leaves this time using Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers Distress ink as watercolour. Once I had completed the leaves (and they were dry) I erased the pencil lines.
To add the berries I used Ruby Red Metallic Shimmer Spray as watercolour and dotted these around the wreath. I also added some gold ones using Heidi Swapp gold spray.
For the sentiment I heat embossed one from Peace On Earth using rose gold embossing powder.
