Imagine Crafts - Learn How To Create A Color Wash Effect On A Card
Following in the footsteps of fashions trends we explore the warm yellow that has the world looking all happy and sunshiny.
I too have fallen in love with this Tuscan Sun color and who wouldn’t? I show you how easy it is to achieve this warm dark yellow effect by mixing colors, pastes, and watercolor techniques.
Take a look at how I created this watercolor wash effect.
Time: 30 minutes
Once dry the surface creates a plastic looking smooth effect. Use a Loopy Rings die-cut and cut out the basic shape to use on your card.
The die-cut elements have this amazing plastic looking effect that is super strong because of all the product mixed together on its surface.
Use On Point Glue to adhere the Loopy Rings die-cut to the front of your card base. Add drops from your inkers into an inkwell and add water.
Using a large soft watercolor paintbrush, paint inside the circles to give a watercolor wash effect. By mixing the two colors of inker you can achieve the perfect warm mustard yellow.
Finish off your card by using the left-over watercolor ink to splat drops of color onto your card. Add a stamped sentiment using VersaFine Clair Nocturne and a stamped shark image. Add Pearls and diamanté.
