Hello! It's Debby here for this week's Watch It Wednesday.    

[WIW Video] Enveloper Birthday and No-Line Watercoloring by Debby Hughes

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.   Last month in my Watch It Wednesday video I highlighted one of the new designers to Waffle Flower, Big Bear And Bird. Well today I thought I'd highlight another of the new designers included in the Winter 2017 release; Helen Dardik. I stamped the two large images from Enveloper Birthday in Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor card. This ink gives an outline to work with but is light enough in color and water reactive so that when watercoloring the ink blends in to the paint to give a no-line watercolor look. I then took my paint palette and in a vibrant color scheme to match Helen's style, I watercolored a base layer over the various areas of the images. Once dry I went in with darker tones to add details. Once the watercolor was dry I used Faber Castell pencils to sharpen up a few details and to try and correct a mistake I'd made while painting. I also added some white gel pen details too. Finally I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink and mounted the panel on a Desert Storm card base. Thanks for calling by and I'll see you next time. ~Debby Products: Enveloper Birthday Stamp Set
