I am sure almost all of us have watched Nina Marie Trapini‘s awesome cards and all her genius unfolding with her spectacular watercoloring. I picked up some tips from on how she watercolored this card by watching this video – its one of my favorite cards from her – and tried to make something from it. Here’s the result –
I started with a watercolor panel, stamped the flowers and leaves from Summer Garden in Versamark watermark ink and made some clear heat embossing. I then water colored the whole thing . I didn’t use Zig Markers, but used my distress inks, but the method is more or less the same that Nina has described – soft to dark coloring and layered coloring. I even sprayed some Perfect Pearl mixed with water for the subtle pearly sheen.
Once done, I thought of adding some multi-frame-dimension in my card too, but I don’t own any such die – instead I did some partial die cutting using SSS Stitched Rectangles dies and ended up with two vertical panels which I foam taped to the card base, along with the outer panel.
The sentiment is from Altenew Painted Greetings, stamped using Walnut Stain distress ink, which I then fussy cut and foam mounted on the panel. For embellishing I used gold and silver sequins.
