Easy Watercolor Pencil Background
Creating a graceful loose watercolor background is so relaxing. And, I was curious if I could achieve that willowy look with Altenew Woodless Watercolor Pencils. To be honest, I didn’t think it was possible.
As you can see, these delightful blooms from Altenew Kind Reminders look like they’re falling in the water. This watery background was easy to create with three Woodless Watercolor Pencils: Turquoise, Mountain Mist, and Desert Night. Watch the video to learn how.
Next, I colored the blooms with Yellow Ochre, Coral Bliss, Orange Cream, and Oolong Tea watercolor pencils. For the leaves, I used Moss and Shadow Creek.
Of course, no card of mine is complete without splatter. Here I used, Desert Night, Moss, and Jet Black watercolor pencils to splatter the slimline card. I chose a sentiment from Altenew + Hero Arts Bloom & Grow Stamp Set and stamped it with Obsidian Pigment Ink.
・・・ Thank You ・・・
