Sketchy flowers......

Hi there it's Anja again, and for today I would like to focuse on flowers.


I wanted to create a bouquet with the different flowers and do some no line watercoloring. I loved the watercoloring but wanted something different so after all the watercoloring was done I traced all the flowers with a black marker to create a sketchy look.

First I took a watercolor paper panel and stamped the different flowers in antique linene distres ink and masked a lot. After this stamping I placed the negative from a circle die over the flowerbouquet and used the waves stencil to create a background.
I then watercolored all the flowers using distressink. After the flowers were dry I came back with a black finetip marker to trace the lines of the flowers again to get a bit of a sketchy look.
To give it some more interest I stamped some leaves in black ink.
Took a chipboard word banner and colored it with a black marker.
To finish it I placed some sequins at random.
I could have placed my panel on some white cardbase but I would like to use the colors in the panel to come back in my cardbase. Adhered the kraft and the panel in a slightly angle to give it more dimension.




After no line watercoloring you could give your card a complete other look by tracing the images with a marker to get a sketchy look.
To give your card more dimension try placing your layers in a slightly different angle.
