Color Mixing with Watercolors + Flat Wash

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

Happy Monday, all! I’m back with more card kit inspiration for you all! The July 2018 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp is packed with fun, summer-inspired products. I couldn’t resist creating a card using the stamp set, One Cool Pineapple, and some watercolor paints.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I stamped the greeting first using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then I stamped the cactus stamp repeatedly around the greeting area. I also added the smaller heart from the stamp set in more open areas.

To add color to the stamping, I used the Tropicals set of watercolor paints from Prima. (Be sure to watch the video above for tips on color mixing and painting a flat wash of color). After that was dry, I added some purple sequins (I don’t know which sequins I used exactly, so I’ve linked to some similarly looking ones).

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope this gives you another way to use elements from the card kit! You can buy the July 2018 card kit on it’s own, or you can subscribe to receive this card kit and future kits.
