Simple Water Colored Posies

Simple Water Colored Posies Card

My love of water color started in my High School Art class.

Unfortunately for me, I’m not very good at drawing.

Except simple little objects.

For my Xyron Design Team project this week…

Derwent Academy sent us some awesome goodies to play with.

For my card…I cut the watercolor paper to 3 ¾” x 5″ and drew simple little flowers

on the bottom.  (Can’t get much easier than this.)

I colored in my flowers and leaves using the water color pencils.

I used the lighter pencil first and then added a little shading with the darker pencil.

You don’t have to fill the entire image.

Use a wet paint brush and go over pencil marks to blend the colors.

For my Words…I took a small piece of the water color paper and did a scribble background

with the blues and purple water color pencils.

Blend the colors together with a wet paintbrush.

After the paper was completely dry, I inserted it into my Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker*.

The Xyron Sticker Maker* is great to use when cutting out small dies.

It adds complete adhesive and makes the perfect little word sticker.

I used my Xyron Creative Station* to add adhesive to the back of my layers.

That way, I don’t have to worry about any warpage on my watercolored layer.

A simple bow finishes off this simple watercolored card.
