Orikami and Watercoloring

PE: Honorable mention at Sovushka Slavia!!

Sovushka Slavia Top 5

Hello! Back with another card!

I wanted to make a card with watercoloring for some time now – with watercoloring used not as the focal point, but something to accentuate whatever was supposed to be on the card. And I wasn’t looking for the proper watercoloring techniques – something different. Then, I came across this card from Chupa. Isn’t it gorgeous! I kinda picked the part where she has added the splotchy watercoloring – but I didn’t flick any colors, I kinda dabbed a little of the darker colors in with the lighter colors, when the paper was still wet. And this is what I got –

Watercoloring with OrikamiI then stamped the sentiment from Sentiment Sampler from Paper Smooches in Hero Arts Black ink. The background piece was something I had made some time ago for another card. After mounting the trimmed watercolor panel on this, I added a few star wood veneers as embellishment.
