Hello and welcome back for another video! Today, I watercolored our lovely Lucky Tulip with some zig markers.
First, I gold glitter heat embossed the tulip onto a 4 1/2 inch x 6 inch watercolor panel. I had a 9×12 inch watercolor paper pad and just cut the sheet in half horizontally and vertically for four panels.
Next I watercolored the petals of my tulip with No. 21 (Light Carmine), No. 27 (Dark Pink) and No 82 (Purple). I layered each color over each other. This is my favorite painting technique to use with my zig markers! For the stem and leaves, I used No 41 (Light Green), No. 45 (Pale Green) and No 44 (Deep Green). After the tulip was finished, I painted a black glow around the flower for a dramatic effect with my No. 10 Black zig marker.
Then I took the same black marker and created a background wash on the bottom right corner of my panel. This will serve as my backdrop for my sentiment. I used the Happy Retirement sentiment from the same Lucky Tulip set and heat embossed that with the same gold glitter embossing powder that I used on the floral. Before I put my embossing powder away, I heat embossed our Haute Stripes onto a side folding black A2 card base.
Next I die cut the watercolor panel with the second largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle dies. I used the same die to cut out a rectangular panel from black cardstock. I adhered the black panel first onto my base. Then I adhered my watercolored panel over the black panel making sure to offset each layer for an asymmetrical look. To finish off the card, I adhered some Sittin Pretty Pink (8 and 5mm) and iridescent Fairy Pink sequins (6 and 4mm).
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today’s project and video!
