You are special

Hello everyone, it's Kerstin here!

Today I have a sweet underwater scene for you.

This time I was in the mood for a bit loose watercoloring. And the cute Jellyfish goes perfectly with it.

  • stamp the image in a very light color like anitque linen distress ink onto watercolor paper
  • start your coloring with a very light wash of color and ad a little bit of color here and there to create some Dimension
  • you can use any kind of watercolor for coloring
  • add some sprinkles and clear Nuvo Drops (this should be the very last step ;-)) to the background
  • cut out the you twice and adhere it to the panel
  • stamp the rest of the sentiment directly to the background

You can do no-line-coloring in also a very loose way. It doesn't have to be a very crisp image all the time. And it's a perfect way to save a card where no-line-coloring went wrong.

  1. Mal wieder der blanke Wahnsinn, Kerstin... Du und Aquarell, ihr seid das perfekte Paar :-)
    Von mir aus kannst du den Rest vom Jahr aquarellierte Quallen posten, ich würde jeden Tag aufs Neue vor Entzücken Oh und Ah rufen.
    LG, Kat
