Today’s installment in my adventures in watercoloring is one of my favorite color combinations: turquoise and pink. It was inspired by a Lilly Pulitzer pattern that I saw on Pinterest. I used Pretty Peonies from wplus9 to stamp my peony border with Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I then used my watercolor brushes to soften, blend, and shade these lovely flowers. To create the background, I wet the watercolor paper first with my brush, then added color to create a soft, kind of ethereal turquoise background. Some gold Wink of Stella in the center of the flowers, a gold foil Hugs die cut (from PTI), and a white heat embossed “sending” from the coordinating Big Hugs stamp set finished it off.
I hope you’re enjoying these glimpses into my current obsession as much as I’m enjoying creating them. I just sent a big box of cards to work with my mom to thin the herd, so now I have excuses to make more! 🙂
