Waterclour Pencils and Mediterranean Moments

Today's post continues with the water colour theme, and this time I combined the beautiful Stampin' Up! stamp set Mediterranean Moments, Beautiful You, Timeless Textures and the Water Colour Pencils together.

I wanted to keep this very simple and show my class how quickly you can make a card using the w/c pencils as your colouring agent. 

You will be able to tell that in order to place the girl in the middle of the scene, I used the masking technique while creating this card.  I've kept the colouring to a minimum and only selected a few sections of the scene to colour in.

I used Archival Black from Stampin' Up! to stamp the images and did some light applications of colour with the pencils. I blended them with an Aqua Painter, and afterwards spritzed the entire image with water. I love how the colour runs a little, and how the watercolour paper happily accepts the additional water.

I thought the card was lacking a little in balance so added a texture stamp using Real Red classic ink at the bottom corner and the top of the opposite side. This stamp is one of the many versatile stamps from Timeless Textures, and is wonderful to add that finishing touch to a card.
So if you haven't tried this easy method of watercolouring, order yourself some pencils, w/c paper and Archival ink and you will be ready to start.

Happy Stamping to you all,

 I cannot finish this post without offering each of you a fabulous opportunity to join Stampin' Up! during Sale-A-Bration.
