Dapper + Dashing | Always Be There For You with Gayatri

Hello everyone, Gayatri here with you today. I have a watercolour card share for you.

gayatri_Always for you card1

This card is very simple to make. Since watercolour is a massive trend at the moment, I decided to share a simple and easy way to watercolour. The watercolour background is something a beginner can do it. I trimmed down my watercolour cardstock and brush with some clean water towards the top left corner. I used Gansai Tambi watercolour. You can use any watercolour even your kid’s watercolour palette. I worked with one colour at a time. So I added the blue colour and let the colour spread and take its shape as there is water already on the paper. I dried with heat gun after some time. You can always air dry. Then I diluted the blue pigment with water and added over the blue wash to build layers. Dried with heat gun again. Then I added clean water to the edges of the blue wash and added yellow pigment. I repeated the process to build layers. I added some of the yellow to the blue to blend and get a green in between the two colour. I now let this watercolour panel to dry while I work to die cut.

I have used In Bloom: Maggie’s Roses Cutaway to die cut few outline of the roses and leaves using white cardstock. I adhered the die cuts using glossy accent by applying only to the centre of the roses and bottom edges of the leaves. This gives a nice raised edges. I love that. The sentiment is from A Tree for All Seasons stamp set. I simply stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black pigment ink. This ink gets into those groves on the texture side of the watercolour cardstock giving a crisp and clean detailed sentiment. I have added Pretty Pink Posh’s Sparkly Clear sequins near the sentiment.
