Thank You Watercolor Card and Design Team Intro

Hello, fellow crafters.  I'm Julie Odil, and I'm happy to be a part of the Pickled Potpourri design team!  I love the variety of digital stamps and papers found in the Pickled Potpourri store, and the prices can't be beat!

I've been playing with watercolors lately.  I have some new watercolor crayons that I broke out for today's card.  I have a short tutorial on how I used them.

First, a view of the finished card:

I used Pickled Potpourri's Dahlia digital stamp for this card.  The 'thank you' sentiment is part of the Rose Sentiments set.

Here's how I colored the Dahlia digital stamp:

I started by adding the colors I wanted to use on a palette.  These are the colors I used on the flower petals.  I used a fairly dry brush. I tend to dip my brush, then pinch it with my fingers before using it.

Here's those 3 colors blended on one flower...

all three flowers completed:

I worked on shading each of them a bit differently.

Last, I needed to finish the stems and leaves.  I used the same technique:

Here's one more view of the finished card:

There you have it!  This Dahlia digital stamp was perfect to practice my watercoloring technique with.  It's pretty no fail, and very fun!  Check it out for yourself!

I hope you visit this blog often to see what other great projects you'll find here.
