Octopi Watercoloring

Hi, everyone! Kevin here sharing how I created a watercolored card. I used a couple different watercolor techniques on this project. Let’s get started!

I started by working on my background. For easy watercolor backgrounds I love to do some ink smooching. This is a super simple technique that gives awesome organic results. I took 3 different blue Distress Inks and tapped them onto a clear block. I spritzed the block with a Ranger spritzer and simple smooched the block onto my paper. I repeated this twice to get some more intense color. ThenI used the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangles from Kat Scrappiness to cut the background. This gave it a more finished look.

Next, I stamped the octopus from Lawn Fawn’s Octopi My Heart stamp set and watercolored him in with my Zig markers. I used three different shades of blue again to match the background. Then I popped him p using some foam tape and added the sentiment from the same stamp set. For my card assembly. I took a strip of LF Perfectly Plaid- Fall paper and added it to a white card base. Then I popped up the water colored panel. To finish it off, I added a sprinkling of Kat Scrappiness Snow Day sequins.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day and don’t be afraid to leave a comment!
