Mixing Custom Colors for Watercolor Painting – Video 2

Hello, all! Today I have the third and final video in my Watercolor Color Mixing miniseries. I’ll be focusing on mixing custom colors with watercolors while I create this card. This post also happens to be a post for Simon Says Stamp‘s latest release blog hop!

I designed quite a few stamps and dies for the New Beginnings release:

For my card today, I used the More Spring Flowers stamps and dies, plus the Handlettered Encouragement stamp set. I thought the outline flowers would be perfect for watercoloring and showing color mixing…

I used an inexpensive Prang watercolor set for the watercoloring. Be sure to watch the video below to see how I mixed the colors and painting the flowers, leaves, and background.

To finish off the card, I stamped and heat embossed the greeting on some Smoke cardstock from Simon Says Stamp, and then drew a dashed line around the edge of the card.

I hope you enjoy today’s video! Check out the blog hop info below as well.
