How To Do No-Mess Watercoloring
Doing this technique is simple, and here’s how.
1. Cut watercolor paper to the appropriate size for your project.
2. Color using watercolor pencils to add the desired colors. Scribbling is entirely appropriate.
3. Use a water painter to apply enough water to get colors to blend.
4. Let dry.
Let’s look at my sample cards. This card features the Paradise Palms die set. I created it to look like a sunset.
This one uses the Waves die set. If you’re interested in ocean cards, I used this bundle to create a lot of sample ideas in this post.
Which card do you like better – palm trees or waves?
