Hi Everyone! I have always loved the look of no-line watercoloring and I really wanted to give it a try. My greatest inspiration and no-line watercolor teacher is Kristina Werner. I watched a lot of her videos and finally had enough confidence to give it a try myself.
If you are interested in how to do no-line watercoloring, it is easiest to watch the video:
I started by stamping all the images from the Butterfly Kisses set with Distress Ink Antique Linen as it is water soluble. Then I choose a number of Distress Inks to color all the images. All the colors I chose are down below in the supply list.
For the background I blended Distress Ink on smooth Mixed Media paper. To add interest to the background I sprayed it with pearlescent water. This is a mixture of water with Perfect Pearls. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink, coated it with white embossing powder and heat set it. Always make sure to prep the surface first with an anti-static powder tool! That way you will only get the powder in the places you want.
For the images I chose to adhere them with either tacky glue or with different heights of foam squares to add more interest and dimension. To frame the focal point I die cut a white border out of heavy weight cardstock. On the card base I adhered the grey flower pattern paper from the Lawn Fawn Spring Fling pack. To make the focal point stand out even more, I adhered it with creative foam and double sided tape at the back.
I’ve had a lot of fun creating this card and will definitely keep practicing the no-line watercolor technique.
