Happy day, crafty friends! We have a treat for you today. Design Team member Amy Kolling has created a striking card using our new Watercolor Panels and we can’t wait to share it with you!
Now, let’s hear from Amy about her project…
I am loving the HOT trend of watercoloring. Did you know that Taylored
Expressions has released some 3×4 Watercolor Panels? These are PERFECT
for adding to a card! Just add a few complimenting cardstock layers and
you have quick card to send out!
With these panels, you
can watercolor them anytime and anywhere. It’s therapeutic and
relaxing. I have a few more panels that will make their way onto cards
to friends soon!
I’ve used the Keep in Touch Watercolor Panels today. I love the florals and messages in this set! These
panels are printed on heavy watercolor paper so you don’t have to worry about
adding too much water. To color my panel, I used Kuretake Gansai
Watercolors and a No.2 round brush. These watercolors are so vibrant. I played around a bit with the colors first to see what shades they
were and then had fun watercoloring!
Once my panel was
completely dry, I began layering it with a black layer of cardstock to make my images
stand out. This was then added to a top folding white cardbase with
What do you think? We would LOVE to see your creations using the new Watercolor Panels!
Thanks so much, Amy, for sharing your beautiful watercolor skills with us today! You can catch more of Amy’s design work on her blog, Stamp-n-Paradise. Have a joyful day!
