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!
All I can say is wow,wow, wow. Each card is more beautiful than the previous one. I will never throw away any of these cards if I got something like this. Awesome.
Heather, I love this card. When are you starting class at Riverside again?
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!
This card is just beautiful Heather. Your video makes your work look so easy, which is a sign of a master. I could watch you watercolour all day. Thank you.
Thank you for the video Heather and I love these beautiful poinsettias and the colours again are just a bit different and work brilliantly. A gorgeous card! x
It’s always such a treat and inspiration to watch you paint, Heather! Love these poinsettias! A beautiful card!
I am extremely jealous of some people & of course it is a Penny Black stamp set.. Sigh..it is gorgeous.
