Clean and Graphic Watercolor Tutorial



I recently created this trio of cards using my Inktense pencils and a Technique Tuesday pennant stamp that I got from Amy's destash giveaway. I wanted to put together a quick photo tutorial for anyone who wants to try a similar look.


I started by inking the pennant in the middle towards the top of the card.


Then I kept going alternating the stamp up and down to create a pattern.


I scribbled in a little pencil in the corner creating a pattern with three colors.


Then I used a little water to pull out the color for an ombre effect inside each pennant.


I mounted the finished panel onto some black cardstock and finished it off with a white glitter embossed sentiment. This card was inspired by Iron Craft Challenge Inspiration 3 Difficult Colors (purple and green) and Inspiration 1 Trends (watercolor)
