This layout was inspired by a Layout Challenge on splitcoaststampers. I saw it done up in all pinks and liked the concept, but thought the colours could use a little more sophistication with this set.
The real technique though, was the use the Watercolour Wonder Crayons for watercolouring. I've used watercolour paper here and the Aquabrushes. It makes a big difference to watercolour on the proper paper rather than standard paper. Either works, but to get a really great effect, there's no replacing purpose-made watercolour paper.
We played around with blending colours into the image and got some really neat effects during class. I've also gone back over the image lightly with the Weathered Background stamp.
Watercolour Wonder crayons are sold in the sets of twelve (colour families) and then a smaller neutrals pack. Contact me to order yours today!
