Birthday Boy - Watercolours

"Birthday Boy Watercolour Card"

Using Watercolour paints

Another weekend is over and I am back to blog Land.

My nephew and niece celebrated their birthdays in the middle of August and for my Nephew I made this card using my Rembrandt Watercolour paints 5ml. Watercolour paints are not only for general painting to paint a whole image, it is also a use of craft supplies. I used Sepia (416) for the hair, Bluish Green(640) for the present, Cerulean Blue Phthalo (535) for the boys top, Yellow Ochre  (227) for the shorts, Quinacridone Rose (366) for the ribbon and tag around the present & used the Naples Yellow Deep (223) for the skin. These colours from the Rembrandt Range certainly work really well with the papers i have used and give a masculine feel as a whole. The Bluish Green (640) is a beautiful hue to work with and makes me think of the sea. Skin colours are hard to get but, the Naples Yellow Deep mixed with a tiny dot of pink just gives that perfect skin colour.

Other examples of art materials that you could use instead of using Watercolour paints are: Drawing inks (these come in 2 sizes: 11ml of 18 colours & 490ml of 12 colours), Ecoline  Inks which come in various sizes: 30ml of 48 colours, 490ml of 23 colours & 990ml 23 colours also and, you also get Ecoline sets too. Both of these will give the same effect when painting, it allows you to be more adventurous with use of art materials in your crafting.

The image was stamped onto card using a lili of the valley stamped image. I embellished with very little as I tend to find making cards for boys you do not need much. So, i added on a couple of blue and white paper roses, white gems and ribbon and, then finished with my own sentiment down the sides.
