Watercoloring with SU Markers and Twinkling H2O


Hi Everyone! Lately I've been making a lot of square cards because I've been using large stamp images.

This time I decided to color my image using traditional watercoloring methods. I did mix two mediums - SU Markers and Twinkling H2O. If you don't have a lot of Twinkling H2O colors, you can mix it with regular colors by layering over one another. I do recommend applying the regular watercolor first then apply a layer of the Twinkling H2O because you want the sparkle of the Twinkling H2O to show.

With this card, I stamped the image twice and layered parts of the image over one another to give it a 3D effect. It's just a fun way to give your cards dimension. It takes a bit of work to cut the image but the end results are worth it. Don't you think?
Card Details:

Stamps: Flower image (don't know), SU Much Appreciate (sentiment)
Papers: K&Co designer paper, SU Barely Banana, Rose REd
Ink: Twinkling H2O, SU Markers
Accessories: JoAnn Brads, Walmart ribbon, Paper Piercer, SU Key Tag Punch, Stkckles

Ouuuu! Ouuu! Ouuu! This is as brilliant as it is beautiful. I love your idea to layer them. Now I can just buy a couple of H2Os but have lots of colour. I'm like you. I want the whole set of everything going (and backups, lol.) Are there a couple that you'd recommend as being nice over lots of colours (like silver maybe? Or do you find you have to match colours. Thanks for sharing all of your expertise! It's fab! :0)

Maria your card is beautiful! Watercolor is stunning! Is there no markings on the stamp? I have been looking for one like it, I love the flower "handle" on it. Or do you remember where you purchased it?
