Fairy Cardmaking

"Fairy Happy Birthday"

 Using the Rembrandt Watercolour Paints I painted in this beautiful stamped image I bought from Lili of the Valley. I started to work with layers of papers in this card which now seems to be a new path in my card-making.

The close up above shows you a more detailed view of the watercolour paints themselves. You can see the vibrancy and purity of the paint here. I left the dress white to balance off the white where I have the text written, allows t to really stand out too. The key to good shading with watercolours is working from light to dark. How do you do this you ask yourself? Well, you begin by using plenty water and little colour you wish to use and gradually you use less and less water with more of the colour giving you that gradual change in shade. The more practice the easier it gets. I used Sepia (416), Quinacridone Rose (366), Olive Green (620) and Cadmium Orange (211) - just some of my favourite colours from the Rembrandt range of watercolours. Drawing inks or Ecoline Inks (water-based) can also be used as an alternative to watercolour paints, for they give the very similar results but the inks are very different to use when applying If you wish to use any of the inks you can use acrylic brushes as well as watercolour or decorfin brushes too.

And below shows the inside decorated, very simple, yet effective.
