{create it wednesday} … watercolor

Hello PRS fans!!  Rosemary here today with my final post highlighting the new Blossom stamp set.   Ever since I received this set from Dyane I have wanted to create a card that uses watercoloring because I think this set was made to be watercolored!!   Well… today is the day!  I recently purchased a set of Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints and used them for my card.   They sure are lovely to work with!

After watching a couple of videos showing how to use the paints I got to work.  I stamped the small jar image from Oh So Fun using VersaFine Vintage Sepia and then added the flower and stem using the same ink on Ranger watercolor paper.  I taped the panel to a small wood cutting board with painters tape and colored up the image.  Taping the panel down and leaving it that way to dry cuts down on warping that can occur as the panel dries.    Once the panel was dry I cut it down using a rectangle die with a little dotted border and added the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.   I added little drops of Glossy Accents to create the look of condensation on the jar.  Here is a detail shot of the droplets:

Thanks for stopping by…
