Hello Beautiful ~ No-Line Watercoloring

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Tuesday! I have a cute card to share today where I am using the adorable Bunnies in the Garden stamp set from Whimsy Stamps' Crissy Armstrong Collection.

It is a rather simple card where I put the focus on the images and the no-line watercolor technique.

I first stamped the cute bunny image onto Strathmore 400 Series Mixed Media paper using a very light colored ink (I used Altenew Crisp Ink in Vanilla) . Then I used the coordinating No-Fuss Masks to cover my stamped image before stamping the FaDoodle Blooms in the background with the same ink.

I used my ink based Karin Brush Marker Pro pens to color the images in the no-line watercolor technique. Usually I like to use a waterbrush together with the Karin markers but with the no-line technique I prefer a regular brush (I Used an Escoda round, size 2 brush). After I was done coloring I put the no-fuss mask back over the bunny image before sprinkling black and gold paint all over the images. Then I removed the mask and added some more sprinkles with white pain. 

The sentiment, which is included in the stamp set, was stamped with white pigment ink onto black cardstock and then white heat embossed.

After my image was dry I cut it out using the second largest die from the Mix and Match Scallop Rectangles die set. I also cut out a layer from mixed media paper with the largest die from the same set. 

I then assembled my card. I used a kraft A2 size card base, added all the layers and sentiment and finished off with a few golden confetti sequins from 'This Calls For Confetti'.
