How to Paint Easy Liquid Watercolour Flowers!


Altenew have watercolor brush
marker refills and I’m going to show you how I paint with them! I’m so excited, look at this
these are refills for the Altenew watercolor brush markers and you know
how much I love playing with them now I can actually top them up with these
liquid water colors which is what they are but there’s so many different things
that you can do with them and today I’m going to be doing some really simple
painting and I’ve just got a little palette off to the side there you can’t
see my images I’ve already stamped them out and white heat emboss them on some
Brsitol Smooth cardstock and this is the Beautiful Peony
stamp set and I stamped out the three floral images and also the three
larger leaves that come in the set. So it doesn’t get any easier than this, I
basically chose some colors that I thought would work well together
it’s warm sunshine, Rouge and then a couple of greens which was lime and moss
I started by dropping some clean water into the like the wells of the white
heat embossing and I know Bristol smooth isn’t actually a watercolor cardstock
but seriously it really does hold up to quite a bit of water on it and that
means that I can just drop the liquid watercolors in and allow them to mix I
started by adding the lighter color which is the yellow here and then I just
added the Rouge and dropped it in just sort of where the center of the petals
will be so they’ll be a little bit darker and then I mix the colors a
little bit with my brush I probably didn’t really need to but I wanted a
couple of the flowers to be fairly pale and then I was pretty aware too that
they’re going to actually dry a little bit lighter than what they look when
they were wet but I did think it did I did need a bold flower as well so this
flower I did exactly the same technique but I used more color
but you can do this by either adding less water or like I did here i just i
just used more of the rouge color to make it darker it’s such a pretty combo
and the leaves when i was picking out the greens i wasn’t really sure i did
the two greens because i like to have that sort of variegated the leaves
aren’t very big i probably could have got away with just one of the greens
itself because they are quite different in the tone of green but I think it
worked fairly well when I added the lime initially I was thinking it wasn’t going
to work and I could have easily started again and just stamped them out again
but I know leaves often come in multiple colors like varigations! so this is
part of a hop and I have made three cards today to share so that I’m only
sharing one full card here I thought I would show you this panel that I created
which is going to be one of the cards if you link through to my blog and also if
you link through to there you’ll be able to have a chance to win if you are here
in September 2019 and link up to all the other blog hops along there hop and see
what else has been created because it’s always heaps of fun! alright so when I
was getting inspiration on how to use these liquid watercolors I came across a
YouTube video that Jennifer McGuire had made and she had lots of different
techniques and I thought this was a really fun one so basically I’m just
dropping color onto this is Bristol smooth again and I could have probably
dropped some directly onto the panel itself but I did pick it up with my
brush because actually the first color the lightest green that I used here was
the mountain mist look
at the mess I’m making here it was just too light and so that made me go and
reach for the lagoon and once I added that darker sort of blue-green color it
really came to life look how much water I’m putting here on the Bristol smooth
and it tolerated it really well and I just flattened out the warping by
running it through my Gemini jr. once it was dry
once it was dry and with no dies or anything so don’t forget to head to my
blog and you can see what I did with that piece of cardstock I think it’s
really pretty all right so I have die-cut my flowers
using the coordinating dies and I’ve also white heat emboss the sentiment
which is from the inked flora set with some antique gold embossing powder I’ve
created a panel for the front of my card and I used the Moonrock cardstock
splattered it with some antique gold ink spray and then it’s just a matter of
sort of creating my bouquet I was initially going to use the three flowers
but it was just a bit too much for me and usually I find that combination of
three looks better than two but today I just found the two flowers here was
enough I did add three leaves and a sentiment and I think it balanced out
fairly well my sentiment is vertical it’s gonna confuse whoever I give this
card to but they’ll have to get over that and I did just layer up with some
foam tape to add some dimension to the final card so I do hope you like this
video if you do love it if you click the like button if you haven’t already it
would also be awesome if you’d subscribe to my channel and I’ll be back around
again real soon with some more cards till then
happy papercrafting bye
