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.

Skill: Intermediate

Time: 30 minutes

Directions

Step 1

I used Creative Medium, Memento Luxe Inker, and clear texture pastes to create my colored base.

Step 2

Mix Creative Medium, 2 drops of Dandelion inker, 2 drops of Peanut Brittle inker and a small drop of the clear glossy texture paste. Smooth the mixture out onto a piece of cardstock and leave to dry.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

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.
