Carmine – No Line Watercolour Video

I hope you enjoy today’s no-line watercolour video. When I first saw this stamp I knew it would be perfect for the technique. There are a few little petals but most of the image is made up of open leaves and petals which are easy to see while painting. I used soft stone ink for the initial image on cold press watercolour paper and Sennelier watercolour paints for all the painting.

If you don’t always have a plan for the background you will see how I added one after all the painting was done. Take a look at the video below to see my process.

This is such a pretty stamp and might get inked up again soon to keep my stock of Christmas cards growing. I think it would look good embossed in white on a coloured background. Stay tuned!

      Thank you Mimi!
      Hopefully it will work to be back at Riverside some time next year. There are some challenges with spacing yet to be solved. I miss my Riverside people!

    Your soft shading and blending is amazing! I love that you still maintained definition of each petal, something I seem to lose when I try this. Gorgeous card and fabulous background!
